[R] tcltk on linux/rhel6

Dear All,

I've seen posts to the effect that..
1) choose.dir is only available for windows, and
2) tk_choose.dir would be the linux equivalent.

I'm still having trouble with the subject package on linux/rhel6.

I've specified --with-tcltk during ./configure, and I still get the response...

> install.packages("tcltk")
Installing package(s) into
(as âlibâ is unspecified)
Warning message:
In getDependencies(pkgs, dependencies, available, lib) :
  package âtcltkâ is not available (for R version 2.14.1)

Also, I've installed both tcl and tk packages for linux.

Any help would be appreciated.
