[vtkusers] Compiling vtk on Intel 64 bits.

I have been attempting to compile vtk, a recent cvs copy, on a different 
platform. This platform uses the EM64T Intel chip and runs on the 64 bit 
version of RedHat Enterprise 3.

The basic build, C++, proceeds without any problems, compiles and tests 
just fine. When I attempt to wrap TCL and Python, though, I get the 
following error from ccmake:

CMake Error: Error in cmake code at
 LOAD_COMMAND Attempt to load the library
 /home/pete/vtk-build-5.x/CMake/libcmVTK_WRAP_TCL2.so failed.

 CMake Error: Error in cmake code at
 A command failed during the invocation of macro

 Loading VTK command VTK_WRAP_TCL2 - failed

I thought this might be a problem with the 64 bit architecture. I 
remember having read in this mail group about successful compiles on 
AMD64 chip sets. Is there something I am missing?
