Do a first 'make build' after replacing:
#define TCL YES
#define TCL NO
After that you'll have all but XF86Setup installed. So you can build
and install Tk.
If you need XF86Setup to configure a XFree86 3.3.6 server (because
your card is not supported by XFreee86 4.0.3 or some other reason...),
you can revert the host.def you edited and do a second make
