+ActiveTcl's libraries to your library path when execute Ruby/Tk.
+One of the way is to add entries to TCLLIBPATH environment variable,
+and one of the others add to LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable
+
+Probably, using TCLLIBPATH is better. The value is appended at the
+head of Tcl's 'auto_path' variable. You can see the value of the
+variable by using 'Tk::AUTO_PATH.value' or 'Tk::AUTO_PATH.list'.
+
+For example, on Linux, one of the ways is to use LD_LIBRARY_PATH
+environment variable.

+ ruby your-Ruby/Tk-script

+ [bash]$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/ActiveTcl/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH irb
+-------------------------------------------------------------------------
+Based on it, the Tcl interpreter changes auto_path variable's value.
Then, you'll be able to use Tcl/Tk extension libraries included in the
ActiveTcl package (e.g. call TkPackage.require('BWidget'), and then,
