i still believe this is a bug in that package. Tcl TEA build
system works fine with multiple installations since many
years, packages should use TEA and not use their own
searches. btw., if the package making troubles is a tcl
extension, then loading this package into the tcl installed
from macports, it will likely crash.

This looks easy enough (attached is the modified port file).
I am not sure, what's the best way is to submit the changed
portfile. Should i create a ticket on
https://trac.macports.org/report or is this ignored in case
there is no maintainer...
