Even though a package was provided, and Tk is started, package provide
is not reporting any version number.

Built with Tcl core-8-6-branch and Tk core-8-6-branch.

$ /Users/bll/Desktop/ 
% package require Tk
attempt to provide package Tk 8.6.8 failed: package Tk 8.6.9 provided instead
% package provide Tk
User Comments: bll added on 2019-10-04 18:32:46:
An artifact of not updating the versions numbers in the development branch.

Ignore that second comment.  
  package require Tk 
does odd things after the first provide.

package require Tk 8.6

fails completely even though 8.6.9 is present.
