TK-devel should have tcl-devel as dependency

Description of problem:
tk-devel package is not specified as requiring tcl-devel. tcl-devel is
absolutely required to be able to compile anything tk related (the headers
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Only once so far - haven't had time/place to try again, but see no reason why
it wouldn't be reproducible
Steps to Reproduce:
1.On a box without tcl-devel, install tk-devel. tcl and tk will be added if
not already installed, but tcl-devel will not.
2.Include tk.h in a c file and try to compile it.
output of at least:
/usr/include/tk.h:68:20: tcl.h: No such file or directory
followed by lots of errors due to lack of tcl definitions
tk-devel depends on tcl-devel in rawhide, so this problem will be corrected in
the next major release of RHEL. If you need a fix incorporated in to a RHEL
update, please contact your support representative.
