compiling problems for shared objs

I compile vtk 2.4 on Solaris 2.7. The Tcl executable works fine, but the
shared libs have a lot of unresolved dependencies, and the * libs
cannot be loaded in wish.  I figured it's because
a) they don't link against each other (why not?)
b) The Tcl libs don't link the generic ones

When I fixed the makefiles accordingly (i.e. included -l${ME}.so for the
* rule in Kits.make and the necessary libs in the Makefiles in the
subdirectories, it works ( libs can be loaded in wish). But:
running the tests crashes the shell.

I'm at a loss - obviously I have not understood vtk's linking process...

Help please!
