First check if you have any libtk[version-number].so
'locate libtk' should do the trick.
If it is inside any system lib directory, (as i think it will be) check,
whether the directory has an entry in /etc/ld.so.conf.
Then try 'ldconfig -a' as root.

Then go to the ruby main directory (where ruby is installed, not where
the source is).
I assume this will be /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.6.7/[machine]/...
and do a 
find . -name '*.so' -print

Either add the (full-path!)directories showing up to /etc/ld.so.conf,
too and invoke 'ldconfig -a' or add the directories to the environment
variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH:

In sh like shells (like bash) this is done by
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/the/additional/.sofiles:/path/to/other/sos
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
(put this into .bashrc or .profile)

In csh like shells use
setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /path/to/the/additional/.sofiles:/path/to/other/sos
instead.

After that, it should work - at least i hope so ;-)

Regards
Martin.
