.configure might do extra stuff.
If you're picking up on cached configure options, make clean and
make dist might be in order beforehand.

looks like it's picking it up (was it before when you had
tcl-debug-2.0 inside your ns-allinone dir?) and
is being used in the makefile. So it's gotten that far, at least.

That was a change in tcl-debug circa 1.7 or so, I think - check the
revision history for that. I recall it requiring changes to ns...
nothing to so with subsequent Tcl use.
has just noticed that all his local copies of ns built without
tcl-debug either - tho it's specified in configure. Odd.
