A recent checkin
has revised the unix/Makefile.in so that the link step that creates
the tclsh executable now includes the stub library as an argument.
I don't understand this.
I cannot find any configuration where this makes a difference. Offering
the stub library on the linker command line makes no difference
because tclsh doesn't need anything from it, so nothing is taken from
it. When I take this checkin back out, the tclsh executable all my
test builds produce are byte for byte equivalent.
So either I've just not tried the right corner case to demonstrate the
need for this, and I need instruction and explanation, or else this is
a change without a purpose, and I'd suggest backing it out.
