           Summary: tcl-8.4.11 & tk-8.4.11 error in root install
                    instructions
           Product: Beyond LinuxFromScratch
           Version: d-6.1
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/stable/general
                    /tcl.html
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: BOOK

The following variable declarations can be found in the unprivileged user's
environment:

export VERSION=8.4.11 &&
export V=`echo $VERSION | cut -d "." -f 1,2`

They are not found in root's environment. As a result, certain commands fail and
the installation never completes.

I fixed this problem by just typing in the two above commands while in the root
shell, and unsetting them afterwards.
