Install tcl and tk.

Get R-1.3.1.tgz and unpack.

Try ./configure.  If that fails to find tcl/tk (it reports at the end)
remove config.cache and use

  --with-tcltk            use Tcl/Tk, or specify its library dir [yes]
                          specify location of tclConfig.sh []
                          specify location of tkConfig.sh []

as appropriate to specify where you put it.  In the default installation
of Tcl/TK on Solaris, you don't need this.
