Package: otcl
Version: 1.14+dfsg-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

We plan to upgrade the default Tcl/Tk in Debian to 8.6 soon. But currently it
leads to FTBFS in otcl (see [1] for a build log). The main problem is that it
uses deprecated Tcl_Interp result and errorLine fields. Also, the newer Tcl
requires not only -I.../generic but also -I.../unix if you want to use private
Tcl headers.

I've prepared a minimal patch which addresses these issues.
