Unfortunately, not including tkInt.h etc appears to be standard
practice; probably because they aren't required unless you are
creating your own widget classes.

Those headers aren't installed by Tk's "make install", and aren't
included in most vendors' binary packages. So, GRASS has to include
the tkInt.h and tkIntDecls.h files for the various Tk versions.

That's one possibility eliminated.

Has anything changed between 8.3 and 8.4 which would affect code which
creates new widget classes?

Tk 8.4 isn't going to go away, so NVIZ/Togl will have to deal with the
issues eventually.

Another line of approach would be to check whether the original Togl
code has had any changes for Tk 8.4.
