Pentax and Tokina

So I am wondering what the relationship between Pentax and Tokina is or has been. Currently if you look at the Tokina website they have several lens that are the same as Pentax lens. Did Pentax make these and Tokina is borrowing them and putting Nikon mounts on them. This kind of make me feel a little less special. More importantly though I am curious about some of their older lens. If you go back to some of the older Pentax series there are Tokina lens with the same focal lengths and apertures and I am wondering if they are the same lens just with different names do they have the same guts?
