Yes, edit your /etc/ld.so.conf file and add the following line in it :
save the modifications and after that run the following command in a

Do you have installed tcl and tclx ? also you must install the
developppement package corresponding to these two packages. Here on a
Debian I have the four folloowing packages installed :
tcl8.3 tcl8.3-dev tclx8.3 tclx8.3-dev
After that perhaps you will have to recompile dtk-soft on your system
directly instead of using the one you installed from rpm.
Hope it helps,
