$ port info tk
tk @8.6.1 (x11)
Variants:             [+]quartz, (+)universal, (-)x11

In this case, the quartz (native) variant is selected, not the x11 one.

Ideally, the MacPorts maintainer for Tk should create an appropriate patch and 
update the port file.

Only if you are using the x11 variant of tk in which case the patch isn't 
going to help.
