It's documented that in newer versions of Perl PL_na should be used instead
of na. 
Newer Tk distributions know that and compile successfully, and you should
use them for newer versions of Perl. 
I compiled Tk800.019 with BC++5.2 with almost no problems .
(I did 3 small modifications to platform-specific source code to pass
compile, and that was a good exercise to the reader :) All tests for Tk
passed ok. 

Good luck,
