I'm having trouble building a version of VTK that I checked out from CVS
yesterday (6/5/02). I have version 8.3.1 of Tcl/Tk, and when the build
gets into the Wrapping directory I'm getting this error:

gmake[1]: *** [default_target_Wrapping_Tcl] Error 2
gmake: *** [default_target] Error 2

This is using gcc 2.9.6 on Red Hat Linux 7.1

Has anyone seen this before or have any advice? I want to use ParaView, 
and I've heard that it works with Tcl/Tk 8.3.1. If it works with more 
recent versions as well, maybe upgrading Tcl/Tk would solve the problem.
