Is that a binary package of Ruby 1.8.2 ?
If you say about source files, Ruby/Tk can work with Tcl/Tk8.4.7. 
I already tested that Ruby/Tk works with Tcl/Tk8.4.7 and 8.5a1 
(and ActiveTcl-8.4.6.1 binary package).
Unless Tcl/Tk's API has incompatible changes, you'll be able to 
use the latest Tcl/Tk libraries under current Ruby/Tk source codes
(Maybe you need to call Tk.tk_call() to control new features of 
the Tcl/Tk libraries). The only thing you must do is to remake 
ext/tcltklib/tcltklib.so which links to the latest Tcl/Tk libraries 
(Please see ext/tcltklib/README.1st).
