Yes, I think this is a sort of autoconf bug. You actually need to do:

        sed -e 's/TCLSH8.3/TCLSH83/g' < configure >
        mv configure
        chmod a+x configure

There is actually a target in the Makefile for this (except that the
version numbers to not match).

I have committed the 8.3 patches to the CVS repository now so that
everyone can get the 8.3 version from there.
