Thanks for your help. This is something I've been bashing my head against 
for a long time (months). It's a relief to know what the problem is. 
However, I don't understand what you mean in your last paragraph. I know 
tcl/tk is a development environment but what requires linking in it console 
gdb or a GUI version of gdb?


Thanks again.
