Package: tcl8.5-dev
Version: 8.5.3-2
Severity: important

tcl8.5-dev does not include certain public headers from libtommath.

For instance, when trying to build the TclRAL package against
the tcl8.5-dev I get this error:

.... -c `echo ./src/ral_attribute.c` -o ral_attribute.o
In file included from ./src/ral_attribute.c:69:
/usr/include/tcl8.5/tclTomMath.h:29:27: error: tommath_class.h: No such file or directory

Simple grepping the /usr/include/tcl8.5/tclTomMath.h yileds:

% grep #include /usr/include/tcl8.5/tclTomMath.h
#include <tclTomMathDecls.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <ctype.h>
#include <limits.h>
#include <tommath_class.h>

but the tommath_class.h is not installed:

% find /usr/include/tcl8.5 -name tommath_class.h

Additional info: tommath_class.h also references tommath_superclass.h,
so both of them should be installed.
