I found it.  The answer is that you need to not only install blt, but
tell it where tcl is, so the magic word is:

export TCL_LIBRARY=/usr/share/tcl8.4

In floundering around looking for this, I found a brand new blt3.0 to
install, instead of the blt2.4 I had been using, which may have also
fixed some of the problem.
