It appears that tcltkgrass requires a newer version of Tcl/Tk than
that which is installed on your system.

You could modify the file tcltkgrass/main/gui.tcl to eliminate the use
of "file join ...". For example, rewriting:

	set gispath [file join $env(GISBASE) $path "*"]
	set gispath "$env(GISBASE)/$path/*"

There are three occurrences of "file join ..." in gui.tcl; there is
another in gis_set.tcl, but that is unlikely to be used.

However, there could be other reasons why tcltkgrass might not work
with an older version of Tcl/Tk.
