package require Pgtcl doesn't work

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #228263 +++
Description of problem:
A tcl script can't load the package Pgtcl
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
"package require Pgtcl" command in tcl script.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.% package require Pgtcl
can't find package Pgtcl
package ifneeded Pgtcl 1.5.2 [list load [file join $dir libpgtcl1.5.2.so]]
is missing in file /usr/lib/Pgtcl/pkgIndex.tcl
-- Additional comment from firstname.lastname@example.org on 2008-01-23 03:48 EST --
postgresql-tcl package doesn't include pgtclsh any more.
Shared library is deployed in /usr/lib/Pgtcl with no symlink in /usr/lib.
A workaround would be to place a pgtcl file in /etc/ld.conf.d including
/usr/lib/Pgtcl in the library path
This is fixed upstream in pgtcl 1.5.3 and up, which means that it is not an issue in any supported Fedora
branch. In RHEL it is only an issue in base RHEL5 and RHEL4-Stack-V1. Best response might be to update
these branches to 1.5.3.

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion, but this component is not scheduled to be updated in
the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. If you would like
this request to be reviewed for the next minor release, ask your
support representative to set the next rhel-x.y flag to "?".
RHEL-5 has now reached production phase 2, in which only security and critical
bugs will be addressed. I'm afraid this is neither, so it won't be fixed in
RHEL-5. Since it is fixed in RHEL-6, I am closing this bug as NEXTRELEASE.
