I'm trying to build the plugin s on a 64-bit RHEL5 machine.
I've built Tcl8.5.10 from source- 64 bit. I get errors trying to build with it:

gmake LINUX TCLINC=-I/afs/ TCLLIB=-L/afs/
Building Molecule File Reader plugins

/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /afs/ when searching for -ltcl8.5
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /afs/ when searching for -ltcl8.5
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -ltcl8.5
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake[2]: *** [] Error 1
gmake[1]: *** [molfilelibs] Error 1
gmake: *** [LINUX] Error 2{msuhovec}549: file /afs/
/afs/ ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, AMD x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), not stripped

Normally when I see that error, it'sbecause I'm linking to a 32-bit library. Not sure what the deal is here. I'm assuming that I should be building
these with the 64-bit version? Or am I missing something else?

Thanks for any help,
