Yes, but I guess the Debian configured on your PineBook has probably the
default repositories setup for ARM architecture in /etc/apt/sources.list

If so, then it will likely be sufficient to install just the development
package. Check which tcl/tk version (8.x) you need an then try:

sudo apt-get install tcl8.x-dev tk8.x-dev

If they are not available, you may indeed need to compile from source.
Again it may be advisable to get the (regular) Debian source package and
use Debian tools to compile it. A good description is in the Debian
Administrator Handbook:

To add another Debian repository to get the source packages not
available for pinebook you may also need to add the signing key to your
distro trust database. See `man apt-key`.
