This package is also installed in LFS during the bootstrap phase. As it is not installed during Chapter 6 of LFS, installation instructions are included here in BLFS.
Install Tcl by running the following commands:
cd unix && ./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-threads && make
To test the results, issue: make test.
Now, as the root user:
make install && make install-private-headers && ln -v -sf tclsh8.4 /usr/bin/tclsh
--enable-threads: This switch forces the package to build with thread support.
make install-private-headers: This command is used to install the Tcl library interface headers used by other packages if they link to the Tcl library.
ln -v -sf tclsh8.4 /usr/bin/tclsh: This command is used to create a compatibility symbolic link to the tclsh8.4 file as many packages expect a file named tclsh.
