Dirk may want to dig in here:

Seems like you have a system with a /usr/lib64 dir for 64 bit libraries, but Tcl files in /usr/lib. If that is not an anomaly, it looks like we have a configure bug (conceiveably, a system might be using /usr/lib for architecture-independent files, and lib64/lib32 for binaries). It doesn't look too hard to modify configure to also check /usr/lib, but we probably shouldn't do it if one user has shot himself in the foot somehow.
