quote.tcl uses "file link" which is I believe added for
tcl 8.4. I found in an earlier exmh, instead of "file
link", "exec ln -s" was being used.

Sorry, I'm not a tcl user, so I don't know how best to
remedy this. It seems like something the installer
should patch.

Here's the relevant part of the log:

12:10:48 (0.002) {Quote_MakeFile: bad option "link":
must be atime, attributes, channels, copy, delete,
dirname, executable, exis
ts, extension, isdirectory, isfile, join, lstat, mtime,
mkdir, nativename, owned, pathtype, readable, readlink,
rename, rootname,
size, split, stat, tail, type, volumes, or writable}
