AFAIK, that code requires Tcl/Tk 8.4, but you are using 8.0 (i.e. the
tcl.h header which configure located is the 8.0 version).

You will need to ensure that the tcl.h and tk.h which configure finds
are the 8.4 versions. The simplest solution would probably be to
uninstall the tcl8.0-dev package (and probably the corresponding
tk8.0-dev package).
