Since the test of autoconf consists only to test whether or not there 
is some line not beginning with spaces or '+' and not beginning by
the name of the game :

ac_err=`grep -v '^ *+' conftest.out | grep -v "^conftest.${ac_ext}\$"`
if test -z "$ac_err"; then

It might be that there is an error message (or a warning) not related
to a failure to find tcl.h but that defines ac_err as not empty and
hence the test fails.

Does the preprocessing of the file go without *any* warning or error
