Problem with VIEW, INSPECT and DETAIL under Linux

I run Slackware Linux 3.1 (kernel 2.0.0) on my Pentium system. I have
installed STk 3.1.1 from the binary distribution available on the second
Slackware CD-ROM.

I have problems in evaluating VIEW, INSPECT and DETAIL. When I do, I get a
partially completed window and an error message. Let's suppose I evaluate
the following definition:

STk> (define l '(a b c))

When I issue:

STk> (view l)

I get:

*** Error:
ambiguous option "-yscroll"

I get similar results with INSPECT and DETAIL:

STk> (inspect l)

*** Error:
Bad number in a comparison: ((winfo (quote exist) inspector_widget_name) 0)

STk> (detail l)

*** Error:
bad option "disable": must be activate, add, cget, configure, delete,
entrycget, entryconfigure, index, insert, invoke, post, postcascade, type,
unpost, or yposition

I think I have correctly installed the binary distribution of STK: I have
unpacked the archives under /usr/local/lib and created appropriate links
under /usr/local/bin. Before evaluating VIEW, INSPECT and DETAIL, I issue
the following command:

STk> (require "inspect-main")

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance
