    wish is part of the Tk/TCL Gui toolkit.

    You can download Tk 8.5 from SunFreeware.com or Blastwave.org has version 8.4 and 8.5 available.

    Sun Freeware example

    Download all required packages
    xft, xrender, expat, fontconfig, libiconv, libintl, freetype, zlib, gcc-3.4.6, tk

    As root
    decompress packages
    $ gzip -d <package.gz>
    Add package
    $ pkgadd -d <package>


    Eg.
    $ gzip -d xft-2.1.2-sol10-intel-local.gz
    $ pkgadd -d xft-2.1.2-sol10-intel-local


    Files get installed in /usr/local/bin

    Alternative use Blastwave which downloads files and dependences automatically. How to found here.
