That's right:


tar tvzf tcltkbin_macosX.tar.gz
-rwxr-xr-x root/wheel  1671100 2000-11-22 00:37:12 usr/local/bin/wish8.0
-rwxr-xr-x root/wheel   416312 2000-11-22 00:36:36 usr/local/bin/tclsh8.0

does not contain a link
wish8.0 -> wish

Enicho, is there no tcl/tk provided by MacOSX? If so, we may just remove
the package from our site and encourage people to use that original
package. What do you think?
