After installing brlcad archer would error out stating that it required package Archer 1.0

looking at pkgIndex.tcl it was missing the ifneeded line

added
package ifneeded Archer 1.0 [list source [file join $dir Archer.tcl]]

to fix.

    Thanks for noticing the missing line. The pkgIndex.tcl lines are actually automatically generated implying that there is an issue or warning elsewhere that still needs to be addressed. A quick cursory glance indicates that this is indeed the case, with the following error when processing Archer.tcl:
    warning: error while sourcing Archer.tcl: can't read "env(ARCHER_HOME)": no such variable
    so the package ifneeded line is not added until that other problem is fixed, which amounts to testing for the environment variable in the script.

    I've applied your change to the CVS-included pkgIndex.tcl in the meantime until that other problem is fixed. Thanks for noticing the problem and raising the issue to attention!
