New tcl and tk 8.5 was released. I'd like to push it to rawhide as
soon as possible. The list of dependent packages could be found in
this draft:

maintainers of dependent packages should fix them according to

Marcela,

Can you also post to fedora-devel-announce to get wider distribution?
Judging by the high number of broken deps still in rawhide caused by
this tcl soname bump, I suspect that many maintainers may not have
seen this announcement.  Many only subscribe to the -announce list and
not devel-list to avoid the high traffic here.  (These kind of
distro-wide soname bumps that affect many packages should always be
posted to fedora-announce).

Also, I've noticed that several packages don't rebuild with the new
Tcl and have build failures with the following:

/usr/include/tcl-private/generic/tclPort.h:27:28: error: tclUnixPort.h: No such file or directory

(one example full log is here:
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/getfile?taskID=326763&name=build.log)

is there any easy fix?

Alex

Today I rebuilt tcl with patches, which fixes this issue as I hope. Please let me know, if your problem persists.
