Problems installing Expect-5.42.1

Hi, I'm having the following problem:
Book version 6.0, using LiveCD, using the file from 
the "Building LFS from Live CD Hint".
When I tried to install Expect-5.42.1 I had an error when I ran the line
./configure --prefix=/tools --with-tcl=/tools/lib --with-x=no
I don't remember the specifics but from searching the archives found a 
similar error which suggested adding 
as ./configure was missing a file. This appeared to work but I'm now
 having an error when I run make SCRIPTS="" INSTALL
The error is: 
/mnt/lfs/tools/bin ../lib/gcc/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.4.1/ ../ ../ ../ ../
i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find ltcl8.4
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [expect_installed] Error 1

Any help welcome please? Is this maybe related to my earlier error
or does anyone know if the file from the hint is suitable 
for LFS version 6.0 as it says that it's for version 6.2 but I'm not sure
what the differences are or if that's the problem?
