I think using is better idea, see below

And user can override it with WITH_TCL_VER/WITH_TK_VER or the port will
pick up already installed version. I for one use tk86.

You could have used CVS, i.e.

  $ cvs -d$CVSROOT co togl
  <make changes>
  $ cvs diff -up

Well, I've tried to update the port myself but I'm yet to figure out how
to reliably determine ${WRKSRC} from lang/tcl${TCL_VER}. It's easy to do
from a slave port but togl is not one.
