I don't have tk installed here, so I tested to see if there were
any conflicts by trying to install both versions.  No conflicts, they
can both be installed at the same time.

In the ports-modules(5) man page, you will find a brief description
of the x11/tk module and the variables that it sets.  One of those is
MODTK_VERSION.  A brief glance through the module itself in
/usr/ports/x11/tk/tk.port.mk makes it appear to me that you can
set this variable to 8.6.  I'd try it and see if it makes a difference for you.
