Bug description:
  TCL needs 'multiarching' so that it has co-installable libraries and
  config scripts for packages to cross-build with. e.g sqlite3, but in
  fact anything with tcl language bindings (45 packages build-dep on
  tcl8.5, and 65 on tcl-dev).

  The attached patch provides such mutiarchification, by:

  qEssentially the .so and .a libs, and the tclConfig.sh config script
  are all moved into multiarch directories in the existing tcl8.5-dev
  and a new tcl8.5-lib package for the runtime library. Both these
  packages are Multi-Arch: same and thus co-installable.

  All the other files remain in the tcl8.5 package, although there may
  be arch-specific files in there which should move? That package is MA:
  foreign as tcl is able to run scripts in an arch-independent fashion.

  This has been tested for armhf and arm64 cross-building and seems to
  work OK.
