I believe R needs to be compiled with tcltk support for the package to work. Do 
you compile your own version or use a package manager (e.g., on Ubuntu)?  If you 
have TCL/TK installed in a "standard" location, all should be well I think.



On my Ubuntu machine, I have both the "tcl" and the "tk" packages installed 
through Synaptic (the package manager).
