The configure script for R tries its best to find the Tcl/Tk
installation. What does it tell you at the end?

Notice that Tcl/Tk must be installed before you configure R, and also
that you might need to remove the config.cache file before

If that doesn't work, you'll have to tell us where tcl.h,
and friends are located on SuseLinuxPPC, so that we have a chance of
guessing what went wrong.
