gitk is provided by this package, but requires the `extra/tk` package to run (via the `wish` command provided by `extra/tk`)

Can we include `extra/tk` as a dep of `extra/git` so that calling `gitk` works without manually fetching `extra/tk`?

Additional info:
* package version(s)

extra/git 2.40.0-1

* config and/or log files etc.


* link to upstream bug report, if any

Probably NA

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon

"tk" is already an "Optional Dependency" [1]. If you need help, please use the proper support channels (forum/IRC/mailing lists/reddit/etc).
