Sorry, but I'm still kind of puzzled on this one ;-)

Found the Tcl/Tk section in the manual but I don't really understand where I have to set those options. Append it to 'make all recommended'? I checked 'make --help' which didn't list any such options. Or does that refer to the installation of Tcl/Tk itself? I downloaded and installed the binary version of Tcl/Tk (ActiveTcl
http://downloads.activestate.com/ActiveTcl/releases/8.5.9.0/ActiveTcl8.5.9.0 .293667-win32-ix86-threaded.exe) and as far as I understand, I now need to link that to the tcltk package of R, right? I don't know how I would install Tcl/Tk from its sources, but if that's the better choice: could anyone drop me the command line(s) I need to execute in order to install and link Tcl/Tk to my R (pre-)build?

Thanks a lot,
Janko

SECTION FROM THE MANUAL (P. 32):
A.2.1 Tcl/Tk
The tcltk package needs Tcl/Tk >= 8.4 installed: the sources are available at http://
www.tcl.tk/. To specify the locations of the Tcl/Tk files you may need the configuration
options
  ‘--with-tcltk’
    use Tcl/Tk, or specify its library directory   ‘--with-tcl-config=TCL_CONFIG’
    specify location of ‘tclConfig.sh’
    ‘--with-tk-config=TK_CONFIG’
  specify location of ‘tkConfig.sh’
or use the configure variables TCLTK_LIBS and TCLTK_CPPFLAGS to specify the flags needed
for linking against the Tcl and Tk libraries and for finding the ‘tcl.h’ and ‘tk.h’ headers,
respectively. If you have both 32- and 64-bit versions of Tcl/Tk installed, specifying the paths
to the correct config files may be necessary to avoid confusion between them.
