Apparently the default tcl install is now 8.5.  Looks like I'm going to 
have to update the ports.

You *may* be able to fix your problem by editing the file, 
although I'm not sure what other impacts that might have.  The script calls 
wish8.4 explicitly, but that probably doesn't exist on your system.  Change 
it to 8.5 and see if that fixes the problem.
