This indicates an incomplete/install and/or incomplete setting
of needed environment variables before running Unidata McIDAS.

I have seen this error on Ubuntu Linux systems only.  The "fix" for those
systems was to change the shell used in the tclcomp script:

cd ~mcidas/mcidas2009/src





Please give this a try and restart the build/installation:

make install

No worries.  NB: I am currently out of the office and have limited access to
email, so any follow-up replies from me may be slower than I would like.
