Question installing eggdrop (tcl issues)

I have Debian distro and I want to install eggdrop on it. First I got it via apt-get, but the eggdrop version was oldish (1.3.x), so I did 'apt-get remove eggdrop' and went to get tar.gz of 1.6.10. Then './configure' didn't find TCL, so I downloaded and installed TCL 8.3.4. TCL is working fine, and eggdrop's configure finds it too, and the next phase 'make config' runs without errors, but 'make' gives an error about TCL and stops.

--clip from ./configure output--
checking for Tcl library... found /usr/local/lib/
checking for Tcl header... found /usr/local/include/tcl.h
checking whether the Tcl system has changed... yes
checking for Tcl version... 8.3
checking for Tcl patch level... 8.3.4
checking for Tcl_Free in -ltcl8.3... yes
checking for TclpFinalizeThreadData in -ltcl8.3... no
--end clip--

--clip from 'make' output--
./eggdrop: error in loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
make: *** [modegg] Error 127
--end clip-- and tcl.h are from the same TCL release, and I've removed all *tcl* files before I installed TCL 8.3.4.

Anyone have a clue what's happening?

EDIT: btw. running ./configure with paths to and tcl.h as parameters doesn't help.
