Eric, yes, you are correct.  Removing config.cache and re-running ./configure does not make a difference.

Mmm, I have a /usr/lib/libtk8.0.a, not /usr/lib/libtk8.0.so.  And I do not have a "ldd" program.  I tired:
 $ ld /usr/lib/libtk8.0.a

And it reports: "ld: no object files loaded"

But as you pointed out, it won't work on archives.
