welcome to rpm hell. tcl8.0 is not tcl8.3. unless you have some
dependencies, you might remove the 8.3 rpms and install 8.0. I don't know if
the problems were resolved, but there were some issues with 8.3 that caused
people building packages that required tcl/tk to revert back to 8.0. rpm's
are fine things, but they imply your machine has all the bits and pieces
that the build machine had, which is not always the case.
