Alternatively, use the RPMs I built from 

These replace the RH9 Tcl/Tk RPMs with ones that are built from the
vanilla Tcl/Tk sources; the Redhat breakage is removed. They can just
be installed with rpm -U tcl*.rpm tk*.rpm

appear to have fixed tcl/tk to work properly again (well, at least
tcl/tk applications no longer consume tens of megabytes per day).
