The version of tcl > 8.4 that comes with 5.1 is 8.4.3,1. They are different packages. Thanks for replying. In what sense does tcl 8.4 "come with 5.1" if it is not installed when I install _everything_ from the 5.1 install CD? This is what confuses me: How can tcl 8.4.3,1 be a 5.1 package if it depends on packages that are not installed with the 5.1 release? Sure, any package can be a "5.1 package" as long as I upgrade enough other packages. Aren't packages bound to a given base system version precisely to avoid this kind of "upgrade creep"? -- Francis Litterio [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://world.std.com/~franl/ GPG and PGP public keys available on keyservers. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
