Description of problem:
There seem to be missing dependencies for texdoctk. Specifically, running it requires perl-Tk which is not installed as part of the core distribution. The fix is easy 'yum install tetex-doc perl-Tk' but I think this is technically a dependency problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the Fedora Core
2. try running texdoctk from the command line
Actual Results: texdoctk complained that it needed perl-Tk to run.
Since perl-Tk isn't a part of core distribution, texdoctk will complain when
perl-Tk isn't installed and runs fine otherwise. If perl-Tk isn't present then I
added a message that instruct an user to install perl-Tk from Extras, so there's
no need to add the dependency explicitely and perl-Tk to Core as texdoctk isn't
an essential teTeX utility.
For reference please see bug 162441.
