after doing ./configure, I get this:

Code:

checking for Tcl library... not found
checking for Tcl header... found /usr/include/tcl8.5/tcl.h
checking whether the Tcl system has changed... yes
configure: error:

  Tcl cannot be found on this system.

  Eggdrop requires Tcl and the Tcl development files to compile.
  If you already have Tcl installed on this system, make sure you
  also have the development files (common package names include
  'tcl-dev' and 'tcl-devel'). If I just wasn't looking
  in the right place for it, re-run ./configure using the
  --with-tcllib='/path/to/libtcl.so' and
  --with-tclinc='/path/to/tcl.h' options.

  See doc/COMPILE-GUIDE's 'Tcl Detection and Installation' section for more
  information.


I have the dev packages for tcl8.5 and tcl8.6, and straight tcl-dev
my system is Debian Jessie

any ideas?

Go here:
http://eggwiki.org/Main_Page

See:
Tcl related issues
- the third one down :
" I installed the tcl-dev package but eggdrop doesn't find it on my new operating system (Ubuntu 14, etc.) "

and click it.
See if you think that might be it.

I hope this helps.

In case that site ever goes down, the answer is to tell configure where to look for the TCL library:
Quote:

./configure --with-tclinc=/usr/include/tcl8.6/tcl.h --with-tcllib=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libtcl8.6.so
