IMO, this is not a priority for 1.0.

If tcl is not available at configure time, the build system does
mostly the right thing: it does not build kadmin/testing/util/*tcl,
and it does not run the kadm5 unit tests. However, it's warning
message in kadmin/testing/util is a single line, easily missed; it
should be a "+++"-style error like the unit-test directories.

If a site acquires tcl after configuring, re-configs the unit-test
directories, and runs gmake check, start_servers will fail because it
cannot find kadmin/testing/util/*tcl, which were not built because tcl
was unavailable. start_server should check for the existence of these
programs explicitly a print a useful error message (like, "now that
you have tcl, cd into kadmin/testing and run configure and make").
