Sorry for both the typo and for being so terse in the first mail. This comes
from the configure.ac of graphviz 2.36.0.  It has sections such as

if test "x$use_tcl" = "x"; then
  # TCL STUBS support is required
  if test "x${TCL_SUPPORTS_STUBS}" = "x1"; then
        [Define if you have the tcl library])
    AC_MSG_WARN([Tcl does not have STUBs support, perhaps it is too old? 
 The Tcl packages will not be built])
    use_tcl="No (no STUBs support)" <--------

And the shell then stops with an error when trying to assign the string with
quotes or so it seems to be because configure errors out at the line which
I've pointed to.
