Sounds as if you missed some or all of the instructions in section 5.11
(Tcl-8.5.7) which you should have completed as the previous step.

Perhaps the 'install-private-headers' command.  Please go back to tcl
and rebuild it making sure you (re)run all of the required commands.
That should give you tcl.h in /tools/include.
