By the way, cmake is recommended way to compile WeeChat (I fixed both configure.in and FindTCL.cmake).

It isn't the same here (Slackware64):

$ ls -ld /usr/lib{,64}
drwxr-xr-x  14 root root    624 Mar 22 01:21 /usr/lib
drwxr-xr-x 199 root root 165600 Mar 25 19:04 /usr/lib64

The lib64 dir is not a link to lib?
On debian 65-bits, I have:

$ ls -ld /usr/lib64
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 May 10  2010 /usr/lib64 -> lib

But maybe that's not same config on all distros, and if it's not, I'll fix.

This is minor, but most 64-bit Linux flavors that I have read of use "lib64" directories, while the configure script only searches for tclConfig.sh in "lib" directories.

The work-around is to use " --with-tclconfig=/usr/lib64" for Slackware, but it would be nice if this was automated. My guess is around line 719 of configure.in for -3.1.4 and -devel.
