zmoelnig at ferrari:~$ dpkg -L tk8.4 | grep tk.h

zmoelnig at ferrari:~$ dpkg -L tk8.4-dev | grep tk.h

zmoelnig at ferrari:~$

so tk8.4(-dev) depends on tcl8.4(-dev); headers are installed into 
/usr/include/tk<X.Y>/ (tk is really the graphics part of the 
script-language tcl)

~$ su
# aptitude install tk8.4-dev
