Yes.  I mostly gave up understanding the differences in binary
distributions in Linux.  It just turns out that on the particular
distribution where this pypy was built, it's called "libtcl8.5.so".
Maybe it is indeed just a symlink to "libtcl8.5.so.0", and so if we
put "libtcl8.5.so.0" in the "_tklib_cffi.so" then everybody would be
happy.  However I have no clue how to do that in the .so without tons
of non-portable tricks.  gcc is invoked with "-ltcl", and figures out
at compilation time that it means "link with libtcl8.5.so".

A bientôt,
