That should probably work, but I wonder whether the root cause might be non-installation of Ubuntu "-devel" (or is it "-dev"?) Tcl and Tk packages. It doesn't look quite right to have to tell R's configure about a path that depends on the current Tcl/Tk version. I would have expected that tclConfig.sh would be found in /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib.
