The problem is that requires, and the dynamic
loader doesn't know where to look for the latter.  You need to
set up an appropriate shlib search path.  (Eventually we are going
to fix things so that the installed copy of contains
the absolute path of the installed copy of, which should
remove the need for a search path, but it's not done yet.)

That would have worked if your wish executable was marked to use
SHLIB_PATH, but it likely ain't.  Use chatr(1) to inspect and change
the SHLIB_PATH-enabled flag on a binary.  Alternatively, embed the
right search path into the binary at its link time (the installed
copies of pgtclsh and pgtksh are set up that way on HPUX).

You should upgrade to 6.5.1 on general principles, but this particular
issue has not changed.
