Yes, that’s a much clearer way to say it.  Thank you.


I suggested using build-depends including

  tk-dev (>= 8.5),
  tk (>= 8.5),
  tcl-dev (>= 8.5),
  tcl (>= 8.5),

since experimental buildds use a version of “use packages from sid by
default” that can sometimes be counterintuitive[1].  But that was
overkill --- since recently[2], one can just specify which direct
build-deps from experimental to use without listing their dependencies
from experimental by hand:

  tk-dev (>= 8.5),
  tcl-dev (>= 8.5),

See [3] for an example.  Sorry to mislead.
