Please find attached tcl-8.3.3.ebuild and tk-8.3.3.ebuild. These
ebuilds accomplish the following:
1. split the tcl and tk packages into separate ebuilds.
This makes writing ebuilds for packages that depend on tcl and/or tk
much easier to handle (see expect-5.33.0.ebuild post and the
vim-6.0-r2.ebuild patch attached). I recommend putting the tcl ebuild
under dev-lang/tcl and the tk ebuild under dev-tcltk/tk.
2. ebuilds are now version independent.
Renaming ebuilds to *-8.4.2.ebuild should work. I have not tested this,
but these ebuilds were based on the tcl-tk-8.4.2.ebuild.
3. The original tcl-tk-8.3.3.ebuild did not install the private headers
and config.sh's for tcl and tk. This is why vim-6.0-r2.ebuild did not
work with 'use tcltk'
4. Promotes world peace and smells minty fresh.
Splitting up tcl and tk into separate ebuilds may cause some minor pain
updating the dependencies of ebuilds that depend on them, but I think it
is worth it in the long run.

I have tested on my box, and it works just fine there. Committing.
