dear brian, thank you for reporting this; the page is automatically
generated, the script contained still the old link. it is fixed now.

this is a very reasonable suggestion. in general, using the stub library
should be no problem. the only difficulties i see is
for older tcl-version not supporting the stub library. therefore
the configure file has to me made more clever.... we will try to use the
sub libray for the next release.
