Was it installed from an RPM or from source? If built from source, you
might have to specifically enable shared libraries. If a static
library was built, it would be end in ".a", e.g. libtk.a.

Also, it might be installed in /usr/local/lib instead of /usr/lib.

I'm using the Tk RPM from the RH6.2 CD (tk-8.0.5-35.i386.rpm). This

lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           11 Jan 26  2001 /usr/lib/libtk.so -> libtk8.0.so
-r-xr-xr-x    1 root     root       637263 Mar  7  2000 /usr/lib/libtk8.0.so

[NB: I build GRASS from source, and Tk 8.0 works fine. However, a
binary needs the version of libtk for which it was built; for the
binary which you have, this is 8.3.]
