It didn't look like a tcl/expect incompatibility anyway.  Looks more
like a problem with glibc.  What versions of glibc and gcc are you
using?  From a quick look in the mailing list archives (you did look
there first, right?) it looks as though you might have messed up in
editing your gcc specs file (I refer to
and onwards in that thread).

Hope this is of some use,
