Encountering problem when installing NS2 on Debian

I encoutered the following problem when I was installing NS2 on Debian using the following commands:
tar -xzf ns-allinone-2.29.3.tar.gz
cd ns-allinone-2.29

The problem is as following:
make: *** [tk3d.o] Error 1
tk8.4.11 make failed! Exiting ...
For problems with Tcl/Tk see

Does anyone happen to encounter the same problem and finally fix it???
Any tips and tricks will be appreciated here , thanx in advance

Building from source the usual sequence is:
make install
The last command should always be performed as root. Make sure you've read the installation instructions provided in the package.

Also, check that Tcl/Tk8.4.11 or later is installed.
