Problems installing EggDrop on Suse 9.2


I've been trying to install an EggDrop bot on Suse 9.2 the past day or so, but regretably, I'm not really getting all that far. The first problem I experienced was a message telling me I didn't have a compiler installed - this was fixed by upgrading from Suse 9.1 Personal to Suse 9.2.
The most recent problem is involved with TCL. I installed all the TCL options when I installed Suse 9.2, yet when I run EggDrop's "configure" script (I'm following the instructions on egghelp.org), I get a message telling me that the script can't find "tcl.h". The script then stops and refuses to continue until it can find the relevant file.
I tried searching the entire system for the file, but sadly to no avail.

Now, to the point. I'm guessing that I'll have to download and install a version of TCL from the internet, but there seems to be a variety of options available. From what I've found so far, there's both source and binary distributions on the TCL website.
Could someone give me advice about which files I need to download, and how to install the subsequent files so that EggDrop can find them and be installed properly itself.

The log produced by "configure" is below, in case it's needed to help with the problem.

This is Eggdrop's GNU configure script.

Tcl cannot be found on this system.

Eggdrop requires Tcl to compile. If you already have Tcl installed on
this system, and I just wasn't looking in the right place for it, re-run
./configure using the --with-tcllib='/path/to/libtcl.so' and
--with-tclinc='/path/to/tcl.h' options.

See doc/COMPILE-GUIDE's 'Tcl Detection and Installation' section for more
information.
Many thanks in advance.

What you actually are missing is the tcl devel package.. Thats the one that includes the headers, including the one youre missing.. I bet yast can find that package for you..
