Seeking Help to Install Emacspeak for Friend



I'm brand new to Linux/Unix, though I have experience with the Windows environment, and many years ago, Multics and Emacs.  The only reason I'm venturing off the Windows reservation now is because emacspeak looks like the only hope a blind friend of mine has to experience the Internet.  I have a clean install of RH Linux 7.2, have read pertinent documentation as necessary, but I seem to have hit a wall installing emacspeak.
 
First, I carefully read the instructions and tried install emacspeak-14.01
 
http://www.redhat.com/services/techsupport/accessibility/s1-access-install.html
 
Most recently, I attempted to install v 15 and followed the instructions at:
 
http://howtos.linuxbroker.com/howtoreader.shtml?file=Emacspeak-HOWTO.html
 
Both times the end result was the same.  Loading and linking seem to work fine, but after entering the emacspeak command, emacs came up without a trace of emacspeak and had the following messages in the "Compile" and "Message" buffers:

I suspect that this means there is a problem with a "tcl" module.  I see that the standard RH 7,2 distribution has tcl software, but I'm not sure what to do with it or how to tell whether it is already installed.
 
Would somebody mind pointing me in the right direction, please?
