I'm very unfamiliar with Tcl, but I can't find the definition of
`ui_progress_generic` anywhere, which seems to be the code I need to
modify. It's called in portprogress.tcl. Or could this be a red herring and
it's actually dead code.

In addition, it seems there isn't a debugger that comes with Tcl, unless
someone has a recommendation for a macports included one.

Thanks for your help!
