I have added $(GISLIB) to dbmi_client, dbmi_driver, stubs, any other?
If you see obvious bug, please fix it directly in CVS, if possible.

OK, done.

SHLIB_SUFFIX  in include/Make/Platform.make is not defined? configure should
do that, I think.

Tcltk is more or less requirement (v.digit, d.what.vect, db drivers), 
but I agree that libes and modules using that should be compiled 
conditionaly (for non interactive enviroments).

But you have already tried, no?

I would prefer, if you could add conditions to source and Makefiles, if possible.
