Good, there should have been no problems.

This is telling us that the Unix environment variable MCGUI is not set
correctly, or the Tcl/Tk stuff is not installed.  I recommend checking
the MCGUI environment variable:

echo $MCGUI

first.  If this is set to ~mcidas, then I would try reinstalling McIDAS:

<login as 'mcidas'>
cd mcidas7.8/src
make install.all

The problem should have no relation to the versio of gcc being used
to build the code.

OK.  If you gave me the login to the machine in question I could take
a quick look around.

Congradulations!  I hope it suits you!!!

After running make install.all  again, MCGUI seems to work fine.

I assume some parts of the install did not run correctly the first
