I fixed the Makefile and removed the symlink.

I patched my sources as you suggested. Thanks for the diff.

I am not very enthusiastic do to even more hacks because the internals
of Tkined and most scripts need some reengineering anyway. I plan to
load and save maps by sourcing them by a Tcl interpreter. This will
allow us to do many cool things. For now, I would like to stick with
the old (and sometimes not very flexible) scheme.
