I'm not entirely sure how Tcl_Eval() can cause a segfault unless the
interpreter state has been corrupted, and this is occurring very early
in the startup, before hardly any C code has been called.

You could try "g.gisenv set=DEBUG=5" to see if that produces any

The only other thing which I can suggest is to build Tcl/Tk with debug
info (or are there separate debug packages available?).
