to run tkabber you need to have installed tcllib 1.2 or later.
this contains the uri package.
so, if you're seeing this error, then you don't have tcllib 1.2 (or
later) installed where tcl can find it.
on my system, it got installed in
on your system, it may be something like
you can find out what tcl knows by doing this:
    % tclsh
    tclsh> package requires uri 1.1
if you get back an error, then do this
    tclsh> set auto_path

which on my system prints this:
    /usr/pkg/lib/tcl8.3 /usr/pkg/lib/tcl
this tells me that i need to install tcllib somewhere under one of these
three directories...
