Re: [ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: expect-20021218-1, gdb-20021218-1, tcltk-20021218-1

On 09 May 2002, in a message titled "Python and PIL and rebase, oh my!", I said:

#2) ------------------------------
Given that, I have a 3 requests for the tcl/tk maintainer:
1) for the next release, can we have the header files (other than just tk.h) installed as well? (Where? I dunno... /usr/include/tk/ & /tcl/?)
2) can we have a postinstall script that links
/usr/lib/libtclX.Y.a ---> libtclXY.a
/usr/lib/libtkX.Y.a ---> libtkXY.a
3) please make sure the and files are correct. The current versions include lots of references to /cygnus/netrel/src/gdb-20001125-1/ etc. That's bad...
All of these issues still exist (but now that tcltk is its own package, they are fixable -- when it was all mingled together with gdb it was totally unfixable).

Anyway, it'd be nice(tm) if the tcltk binary package included the tk header files under /usr/include/tk/ and /usr/include/tk/X11/. See
where the contents were taken from the tcltk -src archive.

/usr/lib/ and /usr/lib/ need to be "munged" before inclusion in the distro tarball, but they DO need to be present in the distro (no fair simply removing them <g>)

If 8.3 is anything like 8.0, we need these symlinks in /usr/lib:

libtcl8.3.a -> libcygtcl83.a
libtk8.3.a -> libcygtk83.a

although the (new?) files
might actually fix that problem; I'm not sure.
