Missing lib file: /usr/lib/libtkx.a

Description of problem:
It is standard practice to have libpackage so that one can link using -lpackage, eg -ltkx which would link to libtkx.a ... by creating libtkx8.3.a and not at least symlinking libtkx.a to libtkx8.3.a, any software using the standard -lpackage breaks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download torque
2. ./configure --with-tclx --enable-gui
Actual Results: Could not find -ltkx
Make failed with error 2
Expected Results: The software should have compiled.
Most libs seem to be done in the standard way. Eg /usr/lib/libz.a, /usr/lib/librt.a, etc. It should be noted that the same is true of the corresponding .so
Do you have tclx-devel installed?
Are you sure you want to link statically against libtkx?
Strangely enough, there is not a tclx-devel package.
And, yes, we do want to link statically against libtkx.
Sorry I was confused RHEL 3 has all the tclx in the tclx package.
I guess tclx-devel was added later when tclx was split from tcltk.
Adding symlinks initially in 8.3.5-6 in rawhide.
(Moving to RHEL4.)
Fixed in FC4.
