I installed pg 7.1, b5 last night.  My first pg install ever.  On RedHat 6.1.

I installed it --with-tcl but it failed.  RedHat 6.1 comes with Tcl 8.0.3 and certain Tcl symbols were not installed.  When I upgraded to Tcl 8.3, the link succeeded, although running PG itself failed until /etc/ was updated and ldconfig run.

I don't know if this is a PG bug, or just something to be documented.  But you may wish to make a note in the pg 7.1 installation procedure document, that --with-tcl switch appears to require a post 8.0.3 Tcl to be installed.
