Comment (by MarcusCalhoun-Lopez):

 Using [https://repology.org/project/blt/versions Repology], I have done a
 little research on how other package managers handle this problem.

 [https://packages.gentoo.org/packages/dev-tcltk/blt Gentoo] patches
 version 2.4z to get it to work.

 [https://www.freshports.org/x11-toolkits/blt FreeBSD]and
 [https://packages.debian.org/stable/source/blt Debian] start with a
 [https://sourceforge.net/projects/wize/files/ fork] of blt that purports
 to be at version 2.5.3.\\
 Even still, a significant number of patches have to be applied.

 The [https://sourceforge.net/p/blt/src/ci/master/tree/ upstream]
 development version of blt is at version 3.0a and claims to be compatibly
 with Tcl 8.6.

 I tried to steal all of the Debian patches, but it did not quite work.\\
 Debian Tk installs a couple of header files that MacPorts tk does not.\\
 I have to do a little more research before I start modifying the MacPorts
