tcltk-8.3.3-64 build failure

Description of problem:
If tcltk package is not installed when building tcltk, the build
will fail when configuring itcl; itcl configure would need wish
and tclsh (and libtcl.so/libtk.so) which are not yet installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with a system without tcltk installed
2. Attempt to build (rpm -ba tcltk.spec)
Actual Results: Build stops at itcl configure phase.
Expected Results: Successful build.
Workaround: after failed build, copy the already-built wish and
tclsh to /usr/bin and libtcl.so and libtk.so to /usr/lib and
Closed/rawhide? This would imply that the bug is fixed in the latest tcltk release available in
the rawhide -- still, I reported the bug against the latest tcltk package I've been able to locate
on ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/rawhide/SRPMS/SRPMS/ .
Or is there a CVS repository with even later builds than those available by ftp?
*** Bug 54910 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Thanks, this should be fixed in the next rawhide package release.
tcltk-8.3.5-76 and later should be able to build without tcltk
