Can you also post to fedora-devel-announce to get wider distribution?
Judging by the high number of broken deps still in rawhide caused by
this tcl soname bump, I suspect that many maintainers may not have
seen this announcement.  Many only subscribe to the -announce list and
not devel-list to avoid the high traffic here.  (These kind of
distro-wide soname bumps that affect many packages should always be
posted to fedora-announce).

Also, I've noticed that several packages don't rebuild with the new
Tcl and have build failures with the following:

/usr/include/tcl-private/generic/tclPort.h:27:28: error: tclUnixPort.h: No such file or directory

(one example full log is here:

is there any easy fix?
