Install tcl 8.4 error, Can't find a usable init.tcl in the following directories

I build tcl 8.4.10 on Solaris 8, compile ok, but get error when running
"make test"
I run:

  configure --prefix=/users/xucai --exec-prefix=/users/xucai
--enable-shared --enable-gcc   //ok
  make          //ok
   make test  // this step failed.

and get following error:

TCL_LIBRARY="/users/xucai/src/tcl8.4.10/library"; export TCL_LIBRARY; \
../tcltest ./../tests/all.tcl
application-specific initialization failed: Can't find a usable
init.tcl in the following directories:
    /users/xucai/src/tcl8.4.10/library /users/xucai/lib/tcl8.4
/users/xucai/src/tcl8.4.10/library /users/xucai/src/tcl8.4.10/tcl8.4
/users/xucai/src/tcl8.4.10/lib/tcl8.4 /users/xucai/src/lib/tcl8.4
/users/xucai/src/tcl8.4.10/library /users/xucai/src/library
/users/xucai/src/tcl8.4.10/library /users/xucai/tcl8.4.10/library

/users/xucai/src/tcl8.4.10/library/init.tcl: can't read "::auto_path":
no such variable
can't read "::auto_path": no such variable
    while executing
"lsearch -exact $::auto_path $Dir"

Q) Why are you choosing to build from source, when ActiveState offers
   pre-built ActiveTcl binaries for Solaris as a free download?

	<URL: http://www.activestate.com/Products/ActiveTcl/ >

Q) If you insist on building from source, why aren't you making use of
   the latest sources released, version 8.4.12 ?

	<URL: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?
	group_id=10894&package_id=10452&release_id=375153 >

If you choose one of those paths, you're more likely to find folks
willing to help if you still run into trouble.

     Thx for your reply.

1,  I think ActiveTcl binaries for Solaris will work. But I just wanna
build tcl from source.

2,  Actually I build Tcl 8.4.12 first, and it failed with same error.

BTW, I try to build it on another Solaris box, and it's OK.
But I don't know why it failed on the first box & how to fix it. What
does the error message mean ?
