My feeling is that TCL_BUILD_LIB_SPEC is supposed to be used when
linking libtcl during the building of tcl software packages
in the same source tree as tcl, etc, whereas TCL_LIB_SPEC is to be
used for linking against the installed library.
If Insight is using the former rather than the rather then
it sounds like an Insight bug.

# String to pass to linker to pick up the Tcl library from its
# build directory.

# String to pass to linker to pick up the Tcl library from its
# installed directory.
TCL_LIB_SPEC='-L/usr/lib -ltcl8.3${TCL_DBGX}'
