"-I/usr/include/tcl-private/unix" is missing from the compile line.  The
tcl-devel package should probably make symlinks from the files in
%{_includedir}/tcl-private/unix/*.h to
%{_includedir}/tcl-private/generic/ so that the extensions don't notice
that the headers moved to a different subdirectory.
