expect broken

I added the debug_msg to 

 if in_depends $MODULE tk ; then
   debug_msg "BUILD thinks tk is depend"
   OPTS="$OPTS --with-tk=$SOURCE_DIRECTORY/libtke/tk/unix"

and ran "lin -r -d expect. The compile log is attached.

It appears that in_depend does not function in the way the 
module developer expected. As can be seen from the build log, 
the line "if in_depends $MODULE tk ; then" in BUILD is returning 
true even though the optional depend was answered no.
