>From the plugins directory, I type the following command:

make LINUXAMD64 TCLINC=/usr/include/tcl8.5 TCLLIB=/usr/lib

but the compilation ends with the following error:

src/webpdbplugin.c:18:17: fatal error: tcl.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[2]: *** [../compile/lib_LINUXAMD64/molfile/webpdbplugin.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [molfilelibs] Error 1
make: *** [LINUXAMD64] Error 2

I have double-checked that /usr/include/tcl8.5 is indeed the correct directory for tcl.h. The file I downloaded is vmd-1.9.1.src.tar.gz. I am compiling on Ubuntu 12.04.

I would appreciate any help with this.
