(there would have been a patch attached but for
some reason, I couldn't get the changes to work.
I thought I'd leave it to somebody halfway
competant with autoconf)

The ./configure script fails on FreeBSD because
it looks in /usr/include for tcl/tk and ignores
/usr/local/include, which is the usual location
for non-system headers.

It also fails attempting to find the tcl/tk libraries
as it looks for libtcl8.X.so when FreeBSD actually
calls it libtcl8X.so (the same applies to tk).
Apparently there were changes to the version in CVS
that fix this, but I've been unable to fetch the source
to test.

    I have a patch here that does work, but I don't know if it's
    against accepted conventions or anything to modify CPPFLAGS
    and LDFLAGS inside the configure script. Unfortunately I
    don't know of any other way to get AC_CHECK_HEADER to do
    the right thing otherwise.

    The patch is against CVS, as of about 10:30AM GMT.

    Since FreeBSD isn't currently a supported platform, I am moving this to a "Feature Request"
