How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with a system without tcltk installed
2. Attempt to build (rpm -ba tcltk.spec)

Actual Results:  Build stops at itcl configure phase.

Expected Results:  Successful build.

Workaround: after failed build, copy the already-built wish and
tclsh to /usr/bin and libtcl.so and libtk.so to /usr/lib and

Closed/rawhide? This would imply that the bug is fixed in the latest tcltk release available in
the rawhide -- still, I reported the bug against the latest tcltk package I've been able to locate
on ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/rawhide/SRPMS/SRPMS/ .

Or is there a CVS repository with even later builds than those available by ftp?

Thanks, this should be fixed in the next rawhide package release.

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2002-12-10 07:42:44 UTC
tcltk-8.3.5-76 and later should be able to build without tcltk
being installed.
