[torqueusers] Compiling xpbsmon

Updating the configure.ac file may not fix this problem completely on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 systems. In the /usr/lib and /usr/lib64 directories, the symlinks libtkx.so that should point to libtkx<version>.so are missing:

$ locate libtkx

This is easy enough to fix as root:

cd /usr/lib64
ln -s libtkx8.3.so libtkx.so
cd /usr/lib/
ln -s libtkx8.3.so libtkx.so

But not every user may know to do this.  I've seen this same exact problem with several other libraries on RHEL, even on 32-bit systems. 

This is NOT a problem with the libX11 libraries, so your configure.ac script should definitely be able to eliminate the need for --x-libraries=/usr/X11R6/lib64

FYI, I've made good progress on a new configure.ac that should find tcl
correctly on all arches.  I'll try to post something over the weekend.
