in reply to SOLVED (mostly): Tk Package Fails to Make

I figured I could go digging through the paths mentioned when the make command failed but instead I thought I would ask here first to see if anyone has any ideas
Do the obvious first, blog about your problem, don't check any paths :)

    I tend to break things when I start jacking around with the contents of files I know nothing about. Since this is a work computer I figured I would behave and play the role of the wide-eyed user afraid to perturb anything....

    Any ideas on why it doesn't make though? I did poke through some of the paths and couldn't find the tchar.h file anywhere, which is probably the problem. Do I need this file? Any idea where I could get it?
      Yes you need tchar.h/stdio.h... but you should already have them, they come with strawberryperl
      12K C:\strawberry/c/include/tchar.h 20K C:\strawberry/c/include/stdio.h
        Sure enough they are at those paths. So then, how would I go about making the Tk package recognize that they exist there. Is there some way to manually tell it where to look? Or do I need to just copy and paste them into the paths specified by the fail message I posted above? Thanks in advance.
