many of the configure scripts in CVS were generated
with old tcl.m4 files. The modules that don't have
configure files in CVS come withold tcl.m4 files.
These old tcl.m4 file suffer from two problems:

1) An extraneous quote immediately after relid on this
line causes newer versions of bash to choke:
system=MP-RAS-`awk '{print $3}' /etc/.relid'`

2) ${libdir} and /usr/lib64 are not in the default
search paths for tclConfig.sh, which causes headaches
when building on 64-bit platforms (like Fedora)

Both of these bugs have already been fixed in the
tcl.m4 file in the main tclconfig module in the main
Tcl repository.

Modules affected by this include, but are not limited to:

tclchecker
tcldebugger
tclcompiler
tclparser
tclpro
tbcload

I can attach trivial patches for these 6 modules if it
would make fixing them easier.
