I ran into the same problem. When I manually specified libdir,
with-postgres-include, and with-postgres-lib for the configure script,
it worked. Note that I also had to untar the source code again for the
second install to work (no make mrproper?).

For my system, the following values pulled from the INSTALL file
worked:
./configure --libdir=/usr/lib/tcl8.4
--with-postgres-include=$(pg_config --includedir)
--with-postgres-lib=$(pg_config --libdir)

It would be nice if the install script checks that the library loads
successfully before installing.
