Both attached in a zip archive. Thanks.

I'm thinking that would depend on what exactly my problem is. If it's a missing tcl dependency, the issue ought to disappear when using an existing tcl interpreter.

I noticed about 8.6 so installed tcl 8.5 explicitly because of that. Tcl 8.4 is still listed as a compatible version, though!

It's been ages since I did anything with tcl other than a tiny bit of hacking (and editing Portfiles :)). I guess that is because tcl has no central repository like Python's "site-packages"? (Which would explain why the tcl-thread is not offered in tcl 8.4, 8.5 etc. variants.)
