You should:
a) create a static version of TCL and delete the ".so" file of TCL previous 
installed (there should then be a ".a" file of same name)
b) use "make static" to make a static linked eggdrop.

If you want a shared modules/shared TCL version of eggdrop you can do one 
of the following:
a) install TCL at the standard place /usr/lib or /usr/local/lib (needs root 
b) set the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH before starting eggdrop, 
e.g. with a command line like:
         LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/place/with/ ./eggdrop
