Created attachment 224903 [details]

tcl is not used by matplotlib, not mentioned in the build logs or the source, and it builds and runs fine without it.
Comment 1 Thierry Thomas freebsd_committer 2021-05-13 15:52:25 UTC
Note that by default we build the TkAgg back-end, which uses tkinter. Then, anyways, you get a dependency on TCL/Tk…

(In reply to Thierry Thomas from comment #1)
Yes, it's pulled by tk, but still not used by matplotlib. In QT5AGGBACKEND case this removes tcl dependency for good.
