	Building the tix port on a system with an older tcl84 installed
	dies with compile errors.
	1. Install tcl84
	2. Update ports tree
	3. cd /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/tix
	4. make install
	1. Update to latest tcl84
	2. cd /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/tix
	3. make clean
	4. make install

* make clean is necessary - tix build is corrupted by older tcl84 during 
configure phase.
