Am I reading this right in that "tcl" and "tcl-tk" packages no longer require
X11? I would love it if we went back to using GDI, however I am seeing
unexpected results on a fresh setup.ini:

    @ tcl-tk
    sdesc: "Tcl X11 toolkit"
    ldesc: "An X11 toolkit implemented with the Tcl scripting language."
    category: Interpreters Tcl X11
    requires: bash cygwin libfontconfig1 libX11_6 libXft2 libXss1 tcl
    version: 8.5.18-1
