Do the needful
The attached patch improves the port thus:
. Do not even extract the compat/ subdirectory - to ensure, its content is not used at compile time
. Do not strip binaries, when DEBUG-option is set
In addition, I'd also like to convert the port to using math/libtommath instead of compiling its own version. However, I see some TomMath-related hunks in the files/patch-unix_Makefile.in. Has anyone looked into using the tommath-port already -- as the [Porter's Handbook says](https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/porters-handbook/bundled-libs.html)
The same - or very similar can/should be done to lang/tcl86.

lang/tcl87: do not strip in debug mode
Submitted by: mi@
Regarding libtommath, I think core Tcl bundles a slightly modified version of upstream libtommath. I would rather not take the decision to link against vanilla upstream independently from core Tcl.
