Yes, thats it! The x-includes were not found automagically!
Even if i tried to feed configure with the paths for X-includes
and X-libs, they got not compiled in ruby.

O.K. i stripped the build script down:
# extconf.rb for tcltklib

require 'mkmf'


tklib = with_config("tklib")
tcllib = with_config("tcllib")
stubs = enable_config("tcltk_stubs") || with_config("tcltk_stubs")

def find_tcl(tcllib, stubs)
  paths = ["/usr/lib"]
  func = stubs ? "Tcl_InitStubs" : "Tcl_FindExecutable"
  if tcllib
      find_library("tcl80", func, *paths)

def find_tk(tklib, stubs)
  paths = ["/usr/lib"]
  func = stubs ? "Tk_InitStubs" : "Tk_Init"
  if tklib
      find_library("tk80", func, *paths)

if have_header("tcl.h") && have_header("tk.h") &&
    (/mswin32|mingw|cygwin/ =~ RUBY_PLATFORM || find_library("X11", "XOpenDisplay",
	"/usr/X11R6/lib")) &&
    find_tcl(tcllib, stubs) &&
    find_tk(tklib, stubs)
  $CPPFLAGS += ' -D_WIN32' if /cygwin/ =~ RUBY_PLATFORM

This creates that output:
$ ruby extconf.rb
checking for tcl.h... yes
checking for tk.h... no

It was the same at my other box...

I stripped down more:
$ ruby extconf.rb
creating Makefile

Now i need to check the Makefile,
because the include-paths are not set correctly:

$ make
In file included from tcltklib.c:13:
/usr/include/tk.h:77: X11/Xlib.h: No such file or directory
make: *** [tcltklib.o] Error 1

I did this:
$ cd /usr/include
$ mkdir X11
$ mount -s -b h:/usr/X11R6/include/X11 /usr/include/X11

 and had to add libtk80 and libtcl80 manually to:
LOCAL_LIBS = -ltcl80 -ltk80

$ cd back
$ make
runs fine now, the shared lib is ready.

After mounting, i ran the first script again:
$ ruby extconf.rb
checking for tcl.h... yes
checking for tk.h... yes
checking for Tcl_FindExecutable() in -ltcl... yes
checking for Tk_Init() in -ltk... yes
creating Makefile

So it is simply the fact, that the Path of X-includes 
is not compiled in ruby.
