Could you be a bit more specific?
We know that the autodetection does not always work. As it says in
README.host on some systems its necassary to pass something like
--with-tcl=/usr/ -with-tcl-version=8.4 to get it to build. I need this
for my Debain system. However once this is done ecosconfig compiles
I also remember somebody else is using FreeBSD for the host. Maybe
there is some useful information in the email archives?
Also, a quick google found me:
It looks rather old, but not much has changed in the config tools
