Here is your mistake -- as I stated, your step 1. doesn't execute, you are just noticed your tcl isn't build SHARED. So you must change places for the steps 2 and 1, respectively.

> 3.(Makefile.tcldefs) not found @VALUE@

The @VALUE@ is a generic specification, not an actual item in the Makefile.tcldefs file. You could use instead of VALUE name, any name you found in Makefile.tcldefs between @ and @ :)

It will be present after completing the exchange between your 1 and 2 steps.
