No, it won't.  You can't use that construction on libraries, which is what 
mysqltcl is.

I haven't the foggiest idea.  What you come across as is a guy who thinks 
he knows everything and everyone else is stupid.

No, you didn't.  You provided the information in drips and drabs.  It took 
several emails, during which time I had already figured out the problem 
myself before you posted what you could have posted initially.

As for your snarky do I want you to "spoon-feed me", no thanks.  I'd starve 
to death waiting for you to feed me.  You could have simply posted, in your 
first reply, "You cannot index commands under options.  Remove the tabs. 
Also, the ECHO line will probably generate a shell error anyway, so you're 
going to have to find a way to resolve that.  My suggestion would be to 
hardcode the version number, since you can't approximate libraries."

How about I've always had pride in a job well done, and I resent you 
implicating that I did not?  My responses have been written the way they 
were in the hope that YOU would learn something, but it's apparent you 

It's a moot point now.  I've fixed the problems and updated the port to use 
STAGE, and it's fixing to be sent in as a response to the PR.
