Tcl (Tool Command Language) is a very powerful but easy to learn dynamic

Log message:
install-sh requires that $SHELL is an extremely close match to /bin/sh.

The install would presumably fail outright for user shells like tcsh, so we
need to set SHELL regardless.  But technically install-sh has a quoting bug
in the exit trap, which even results in SHELL=zsh failing.

Log message:

Use these versions as well in Makefile and PLIST.

It's unclear whether buildlink3.mk might include Makefile.version, this
is the reason to duplicate this information.

There are other packages that might be versioned similarily:
 - sqlite3,
 - thread.

No user-visible change in the main package.
