I encountered this error when build

checking which to use... configure: error: Can't find Tk libraries.  Use --with-tk to specify the directory containing on your system.
==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build().
error making: %!s(func() string=0x5594353d5bb0)

tk package seem to be required.

I recommend to add tk into Dependencies.

If you want to use tclreadline as a line interface for developing tcl scripts, just install the package and put the following lines to your $HOME/.tclshrc:

if {$tcl_interactive} {
package require tclreadline
