Those don't look like valid paths to config files to me. On FC3 they would be

/usr/lib/tclConfig.sh
/usr/lib/tkConfig.sh

So even if you have users tcl-8.4.12 and tk-8.4.12 (do you?), your paths

are almost surely not to config files.

Configure reports what works, including that it is not going to build tcl/tk support. Look back at the relevant parts of its output.
