The problem has, it seems to me, nothing to do with Tcl. It seems to be
that it is because you are trying to link with files compiled somewhere
else. I guess that is what -lm15gui_linux is, right?

Do you have the source for all this? If not, you may be SOL. If so, then
you should recompile everything on the target platform.

Nothing is wrong with SUSE. The problem is with the libm15gui_linux you
have picked up somewhere. Could you explain exactly where that file came
from? How it was compiled? Again, do you have the sources for making it?
