1.)  I've never heard of such a thing. :-) However, my perl binary is in
/usr/bin and symlinked to /usr/local/bin.

2.)  The abbreviation YMMV in my post (quoted below) stands for: Your
Mileage May Vary.

3.)  I have a feeling that what has been hosing me up is that I didn't want
to rename the libsybtcl.a to libtcl.a ... the doc's told me it was OK to
NOT do so, but attempting to link libtcl.a (TCL 7.6) into the project gives
a very consistent signal 11 to the linker.

Silly me, I assumed that when I specified EXTRA_LIBS=-lsybtcl it would
exclude -ltcl
