Yes, but that will end up linking with Tcl/Tk 8.4 /inside/ the 10.5sdk; whereas the walkthrough above links to Apple's Tcl/Tk 8.5 built with 64-bit. I do hope - and I am not sure about this (though I have personally verified this by running regrtest) - using MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.5 will make the resultant binaries work on a 10.5 machine.
