Listed is the output along with the output of file on each:

tclsh - symbolic link to `/etc/alternatives/tclsh'
tclsh8.4 - ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.15, stripped
tclsh-default - symbolic link to `tclsh8.4'

I re-ran the getlibs script with verbosity and then tried to locate
tclsh.  here is the result:

rdc@e6410:~$ sudo getlibs --verbose -p tcl8.4 tcl8.4-dev tclx8.4 tclx8.4-dev

Unfortunately, it seems there is no ia32 bin directory.

Searching for that now.  --help says there is supposed to be a man page
but I can't find it yet.  I looked at the source of the program and,
without vastly more knowledge of what dpkg can do.

No joy here either.  doing a grep on all files in /var/log returns only
the auth log where I used it with sudo and dpkg log where I installed

Perhaps I'll send a message to the developer and see what he has to
say.  From the output it seems installation went off without a hitch but
maybe I'm missing something.
