Thank you Steve, I think I would go the tarball way, have never tried
the RPM thing. But compiled the Wordnet binaries once or twice before.

If I am remembering correctly till F7 everything would run just fine,
but then in F8 something in tcl/tk showed error during make, something
about the path where make expected to get tclconfig script or tkconfig
script was different in Fedora, or something like that. Maybe the clue
is tcl-devel and tk-devel that you suggested.

Thank you once again, but, please bear with me if I report some error,
I really need this thing. And obviously for the time being, at least
for three or four more months I don't have any plan to change OS.
