Hi, i've just upgraded to 7.2-release and eggdrop port wont compile..
Seems the problem are with Tcl libraries.

checking for Tcl library... using /lib
checking for Tcl header... using /
checking whether the Tcl system has changed... yes
checking for Tcl version... 
checking for Tcl patch level... 
configure: error:

  Your Tcl version is much too old for Eggdrop to use. You should
  download and compile a more recent version. The most reliable
  current version is 8.5.X and can be downloaded from

  See doc/COMPILE-GUIDE's 'Tcl Detection and Installation' section
  for more information.

===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please report the problem to beech at [maintainer] and attach the
"/usr/ports/irc/eggdrop/work/eggdrop1.6.19/config.log" including the output
of the failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good idea to provide
an overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. an `ls
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/irc/eggdrop.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/irc/eggdrop.

I've Tcl installed from ports,

tcl-8.5.7           Tool Command Language
tcl-modules-8.5.7   Tcl common modules

On 7.1 it was compiled without errors.
