the good thing is, you don't need to compile Pd with Tcl/Tk *at all*.
Wish (the Tcl/Tk interpreter), is a standalone program that is started
by Pd and interprets Pd's tcl/tk commands.
you should be able to replace the embedded Wish implementation by a
newer version.

i have no clue.
not even, whether there are binaries available at all.

btw, you could also consider installing Debian on your ppc to get newer

i don't remember the details, but maybe kiosk-plugin doesn't *really*
require tcl/tk 8.5 (and just assumes it does).
you could try removing the version from kiosk-plugin.tcl:9 (so it only
reads `package require Tcl`), and see whether it bites back.
