ttk refers to the themed Tk widgets. It was a loadable extension package 
in Tcl/Tk 8.4 but has been part of the core since 8.5 was released, back 
in 2007.

My guess is it's not a separately maintained port anymore. That Java 
stuff port is trying to download has nothing to do with any of this.

Is there no way your app will work with 8.5? 8.4 is beyond ancient and 
I'm not even sure it will build anymore on current versions of macOS, at 
least in its native version.
