you have to link agains the tcl-libraries.

i am not really sure what you want to do.
if you want to create a faster connection between the pd-core (the 
C-code) and the pd-gui (a small server in C and the tcl/tk interpreter) 
then you'll be out of luck, since the address spaces of the 2 processes 
will be protected against each other.
(you cannot just peep into the data of another application; imagine the 
security hole)

Tcl_LinkVar should work on the pd-gui side (but that is almost certainly 
not what you want).

if you are writing something from scratch (like a tcl-interpreter as a 
pd-external) you will be lucky again.

of course i have no idea what i am writing about, so it might be all wrong.
