[TDK] Starkit Failing only in Ubuntu when compiled

Ok, so building the starkit with TclDev kit 5.3 fixed the problem
(thanks!) for this script which uses a TCL interpreter (it is a command
line based script).  I'm now having the following problem with a second
app/script that uses Tk.  Again this is compiled. I did not try with or
without the compile option, for this, as it seems like a library is
missing...  It does work on Red Hat and Suse 11.1 but not on Ubuntu (I'm
using 11.10)

The code throwing the error is inserted/generated into the generated main.tcl
file to initialize/populate the auto_path variable.

It seems that the code is slightly different for wrapping with vs without
bytecode compilation, although I do not recall the details right now.

If possible could you sent me the two executables, working and not ?

If not, then myabe use tclvfse to extract just the main.tcl files from
them and
send me these.

Although, first question to be asked should be
        Which version of TDK is this ?

If it is not 5.3 then I would recommend to try this out first, to make sure
that this is not something we have fixed already.
