i seriously doubt that. i think you did make a modification and forgot
about it or use a different command line. you build fails for the vtf
molfile plugin and that has been using the same Tcl library flags for
years. TCLLDFLAGS for plugins are defined in Make-arch in case you use
the build script and a predefined arch.
you can edit the file or use make directly with a suitable command
line as indicated by Make-arch and adapted for your needs.
