Problem Installing AMSN.

I am using Fedora Cora 2 and encountered a problem installing amsn. When I first tried to install it, it asked for tcl, tk and /usr/bin/wish. I downloaded both two packages having same versions and installed them. After then when I again tried to install amsn, it is again asking for /usr/bin/wish. I think that installation of tcl and tk should provide this, I checked the directory and it does have /usr/bin/wish8.4 and /usr/bin/wish which is symbolic link of /usr/bin/wish8.4, but amsn setup dowsn't accept it. The tcl and tk version is 8.4.9.
Any idea. I am waiting for reply. I have searched the forum but didn't get specific results.

try running ./configure --with /usr/bin/wish
and check downbottom of configure, it should find it.
also check permissions, even try ./configure as root

you have to use wish to open it
amsn (should be) in /usr/local/bin
make a shortcut to application on the desktop call it whatever you want - when you get to the command part of the shortcut creation, use
wish '/usr/local/bin/amsn'

exactly how it is above, then use the icon. should work just fine.
