Thank you for your advice :-)
I tried to delete the line you mentioned and I also fixed an error
in the Makefile in the directory .../STklos that tries to access the
.../STklos/Tk/Widget directory that doesn't exist. It seems it is
correctly compiled, but when I start it and I try to load some graphic
demos I get the message:

"*** Error at line 176 of file
autoload: file not found for autoload symbol: (<composite-metaclass> .

Did you get the same two problems?
