I got this error following LFS 6.8, chapter 5, Tcl-8.5.10 to install Tcl:

lfs@sam:/mnt/lfs/sources/tcl8.5.9/tools$ ./configure --prefix=/tools
./configure: line 1208: cd: ../../tcl8.5/unix: No such file or directory
configure: error: There's no tclConfig.sh in /mnt/lfs/sources/tcl8.5.9/tools;  perhaps you didn't specify the Tcl *build* directory (not the toplevel Tcl directory) or you forgot to configure Tcl?

How can I fix it?


According to the doc you link, you should be in the unix subdirectory of tcl8.5.9 to run the configure script, not in the tools subdirectory.
