patches for emacspeak on gentoo linux



I had to undo the tcl8.4 patch because at least on ubuntu 6,
 8.4 randomly segfaults.

Curiously enough it segfaults if you invoke the tcl script as an
executable.

I've reverted that patch until we can find out more.

To trigger the segfault on ubuntu --
invoke the dtk-exp script as an example:

/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/emacspeak/servers/dtk-exp
q foo
q bar
d

The above triggers a segfault.

invoking it as tcl <scriptname>
does not trigger the same segfault.
