Problem installing Tcl Perl module

I need to install the Perl Tcl and Tcl::Tk modules from CPAN.

At the end of the installation, make fails. I think this is related to some libraries the CPAN module cannot 
find, specifically referenced as:

-ltcl -ltk and -lX11

I think whats happening (supposed to happen...) is that these libraries are supposed to be linked during 
compiling, but make cannot find them?? I don't know gcc, nor make, that very well som maybe I'm 
wrong here.

After installing XFree86, iI got rid of error messages complaining about missing tk and X11 libraries. I still 
get the one for tcl. I installed both tcltk libraries and Perl via setup.exe. I am all a bit confused at the time 
being. Is tcl actually installed when installing the tcltk libraries? eg. how do I launch tcl? There is no tcl 
command that I can find, eg. like Perl

Can anyone suggest how to proceed from here? Why cannot make find the tcl library?
