Hi Jose

Sorry for my answering late ;-)

Hum...! Ok-

Actually I'm used to compiling with

./configure --with-CXX --enable-multibyte --enable-nls

Well I'm not used to using tcl,perl and python but U should try this:

i'm on debian so I use apt-get but i think u could  find what u need with rpm

I give you my commands on debian but I  don't know what to do for red hat (system on what you are?)

A) for perl:

apt-get install libperl-dev

will help you ton find lperl and construc plperl...OK

B) for python:

apt-get install python-dev

will install python-dev python2.3-dev for me in order to having support plpython

C) for tcl:

I used configure with '-with-tclconfig=/usr/lib/tcl8.4/ with-tcl'

So my configure's line looks like:

./configure --with-CXX --with-enable-nls --enable-multibyte --with-tclconfig=/usr/lib/tcl8.4/ --with-perl --with-python

which gave me:


checking for tclsh... /usr/bin/tclsh

checking for tclConfig.sh... /usr/lib/tcl8.4//tclConfig.sh

checking tcl.h usability... yes

checking tcl.h presence... yes

checking for tcl.h... yes


then make and make install

I hope these above  will be helpful...HAVE FUN  ;-)
