I am sorry but I think I didn't do a " reply all", when I replied to Prof. Ripley. I did try what he suggested.  

I have installed tcl-8.4.12 and tk-8.4.12 in another folder and given explicit path to those lib folders for the tclConfig.sh & tkConfig.sh.  

I also tried using the /usr/lib tcl/tk installs (version 8.3) and both times I am getting the tcltk package installed in my R version minus the libs folder.  

bash-2.05b# cd /grid/gro/vol/minigrid/tcl-8.4.12/lib

bash-2.05b# ls -ltr

total 824

-rw-r--r-- 1 rstat rstat 7381 Feb 2 09:28 tclConfig.sh

drwxr-xr-x 8 rstat rstat 1024 Feb 2 09:28 tcl8.4

-rw-rw-r-- 1 rstat rstat 1664 Feb 2 09:28 libtclstub8.4.a

-r-xr-xr-x 1 rstat rstat 805566 Feb 2 09:28 libtcl8.4.so  

bash-2.05b# pwd

/grid/gro/vol/minigrid/tk-8.4.12/lib

bash-2.05b# ls -ltr

total 984

-rw-r--r-- 1 rstat rstat 3816 Feb 3 11:28 tkConfig.sh

-rw-rw-r-- 1 rstat rstat 3258 Feb 3 11:28 libtkstub8.4.a

-r-xr-xr-x 1 rstat rstat 974048 Feb 3 11:28 libtk8.4.so

drwxr-xr-x 5 rstat rstat 2048 Feb 3 11:28 tk8.4      

Furthermore, the only warning/error in get out of configure is:

As far as I can see, the ball is on your half, so why are you

expecting any? Did you do as Brian suggested?
