If you're going to ask us port maintainers to do this sort of thing, it 
would be nice if you first put the file in /usr/ports/Mk/Uses.

/usr/ports]# portsnap update
Ports tree is already up to date.

/usr/ports]# find /usr/ports/Mk/Uses -name tcl.mk
/usr/ports]# ls /usr/ports/Mk/Uses/
ada.mk			cmake.mk		fmake.mk		gmake.mk		motif.mk		perl5.mk		readline.mk 
	zenoss.mk
bison.mk		desktop-file-utils.mk	fuse.mk			iconv.mk		ncurses.mk 
	pkgconfig.mk		shared-mime-info.mk
charsetfix.mk		display.mk		gettext.mk		imake.mk		pathfix.mk		qmail.mk 
	shebangfix.mk
