The 6.4 GRASS package there only Suggests python-wxgtk2.8 (which
depends on python-wxversion), it isn't a mandatory requirement (tcl is).
Maybe we should bump that up to "recommends".

you might have a look at the other optional packages at
and decide if you want to install them too.

(sure, it could fail in a cleaner way too!)
