It's a Mystery, and I couldn't find anything wrong in tclDecls.h by
eyeball either.  Blowing away  some directories to force a rebuild of
the tcltk directory appears to have cured it.  There's no other
evidence of disk problems here, but after the current test run
finishes I'm taking the box down to run some pre-boot disk
diagnostics.  I probably left the 2.4 buildbot tree in a broken state,
BTW -- if I don't remember to fix that, somebody poke me :-)
