Did you try automatic dependency resolution or did you download piece by piece?

What gives
rpm -q tcl ?

libtcl is provided by that package. I suspect somthing went wrong when you installed tcl.

If tcl indeed is installed. Does libtcl physically exist ? Here I get:
whereis libtcl8.4.so
libtcl8.4: /usr/lib/libtcl8.4.so

Just wild guesses, but it's a new error ...
