There is, but I can't remember where they are keep.
Your best bet is to search the SN mailing list archive.

Well, I'm not sure anymore.  It used to be that you had to use the
Tcl/Tk version that comes with SN, but I've done a lot of work
to remove those depandencies.  They may be a couple of problems
with using the activestate/scriptics versions, so I would using
the SN version.  If you try other version of Tcl/Tk, let me 
know how you get on.

They are a few fundamental issues, but it is really
a matter of having a week or two to spend on the build.
The crux of the matter is we are changing the build
from using MS-VC++ to gcc, currently it's not working
with either.
