You can't run it as a standalone script. It has to be read into the
custom Tcl interpreter in v.digit.

Try running it via wish, e.g.:

	wish $GISBASE/etc/v.digit/toolbox.tcl

You should get the error:

	Error in startup script: invalid command name "c_tool_centre"

If you get some other error, it's a problem with the script, otherwise
it's a problem with v.digit's use of Tcl/Tk.
