I am the maintainer of aur/lib32-tk[a]. Lately I've been having complaints from users[b] that compiling the package cannot continue, due to an incompatible /usr/lib/libtclstub8.6.a (coming from extra/tcl).

The error seems rational, since lib32-tcl lacks the corresponding libtclstub8.6.a (you delete it in line 44 of your PKGBUILD), however for some reason I am able to compile lib32-tk using the 64bit /usr/lib/libtclstub8.6.a, and the result is 32bit!

At any rate, I would like to kindly ask you to retain /usr/lib32/libtclstub8.6.a in your PKGBUILD, and perhaps the rest of the files in line 44, since they may be useful for compiling lib32-tk.

Thank you.

Looking at the main tcl package, it keeps static libs.
