I don't think /usr/bin/ActiveTcl-8.5/bin would even work.  I'd like to:

"Create as administrator (sudo) one link in /usr/bin to the command that 
you'd like to call (for example with8.5 and tclsh8.5). One time that you 
had create the links you can run directly tclsh8.5 or wish8.5 in one 

so that when RVM compiles ruby tk is included.  It's enough of a PITA 
that I wonder perhaps Gentoo emerge doesn't have a point.
