Tcl 8.6.11 for DOS

Ben Collver has compiled Tcl 8.6.11 for DOS. This is a patch release, so it primarily includes bug fixes and corrections to erratic behavior. A few things to note in this release: + fixed crashes and hangs in lsort + rewrite of zlib inflation + fix auto_path initialization + fix errno management in socket full close. And a few changes that might cause incompatibilities: + revised handling of 4-byte UTF-8 sequences + evised binary encode/decode base64 + Tcl_DStringAppendElement quoting precision + force -eofchar 032 when evaluating library scripts. We've mirrored the updated version in the FreeDOS files archive at /devel/tcl/8.6.11/ on Ibiblio. Thanks Ben!
