Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) : 
	unable to load shared library "/usr/lib/R/library/tcltk/libs/tcltk.so":
  /usr/lib/R/library/tcltk/libs/tcltk.so: undefined symbol:
RTcl_ActivateConsoleError in runHook(".onLoad", env, package.lib, package) : 
	.onLoad failed
Error in library(tcltk) : package/namespace load failed

     32 #ifndef TCL80
     33     {"RTcl_ActivateConsole", (DL_FUNC) &RTcl_ActivateConsole, 0},
     34 #endif

TCL80 is not defined anywhere.
It is defined only as tcltk.c.
