Updating ports from tcl/tk 8.3 to 8.4

Dear Port Maintainer,

You are listed as the maintainer of one or more ports that depends on
tk-8.3 and/or tcl-8.3.  Since version 8.4 has been released for some
time and is considered stable, can you please look into changing your
port over to use the newer versions?  In most cases this seems to be
straightforward, but in some cases minor code changes are required.
If this is the case, can you please contact the software developers
about this?

Don't forget to update the CATEGORIES to include tk84 and/or tcl84, to
bump PORTREVISION (since the dependencies of the port change), and to
check for any explicit references to things like wish8.3 in the source
code that may need to be patched.  Building/running the port on a
system without tcl/tk 8.3 installed is probably a good idea while
testing, to make sure it doesn't autodetect the 8.3 installation.

For non-committers, patches should be submitted via send-pr, as usual.

Here is the list of ports that depend on 8.3 in the default case:
