Unhappy tcl and tk WON'T install


No matter how hard I try, TCL and TK will not install...I'm trying to uses amsn. This is very frustrating as I'm a total newb to Linux. I'm using Mandrake 10 Community, kernel 2.6.3-4mdk I think. I am following instructions to ./configure and make install TCL before TK. Here are the messages.

make installing TK looks really screwy. IMO this should all be automatic. This is definately turning me off. Can anyone please help me get this stupid TK installed so I can use amsn? (unless you can think of something better than amsn to use )
I can't even fit all of the error lines in here so here are some pieces that might help.

I installed tcl8.3 and then tried to install the tcl8.3.5 rpm as suggested by the thread you gave me. Here is the error I received when rpm -Uvh the tk8.3 rpm:

warning: tk-8.3.5-88asp.i386.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 9b3c94f4
error: Failed dependencies:
libtcl8.3.so is needed by tk-8.3.5-88asp

Any ideas?

on locating libtcl.so it said that it is in my usr/local/lib/ directory

locate libtcl8.3
/home/kika/tcl8.3.5/unix/libtcl8.3.so

Hope this helps, any ideas?
