When compiling 3.0c, it gives this error:

After applying the patch, while compiling, 3.0.4 gives this error:

After applying the patch, while installing, 3.0.3 gives an error which mentiones
about a folder path "/small1" but there is no folder named that in root, the
installation creates the "small1" folder in "smalltalk-3.0.4" folder itself not
in root folder, so the true path is "/home/Canol/smalltalk-3.0.3/small1". Maybe
that is the reason of the error? Unfortunately I forgot to take the screenshot
of that and I don't have time to try it again :(

Tcl and Tk were creating the prefixed folder in root, in opposed to GST.

By the way configure time is about 20 minutes, compiling time is also about 20
minutes. Installation time is about 1 minute.
