Subject: tcl command error in tcltkgrass startup

Platform: GNU/Linux/i386
grass obtained from: CVS
grass binary for platform: Compiled from Sources
GRASS Version: 5.0.2-cvs 20030131

Attempting to start Tcltkgrass:

GRASS:/arc/ddgray/cvs/main/grass > tcltkgrass&

    source $env(TCLTKGRASSBASE)/main/gui. ..."
    (file "/opt/grass5/bin/tcltkgrass" line 26)


All home directory rc files had been cleared.

Problem occurred with 3 separate Tcl/Tk installations, most recent 8.3.3
(Mandrake 9.0)

I can't think of anything local that might be causing this. But I'm not
a Tcl expert.
