Well I have finally managed to get Bass to compile.
1. I'm using Debian Linux 1.1 which installs packages automatically. However it
seems to have a problem with tcl/tk. When I installed these manually (tk4.1 and
tcl7.5) it was ok.
2. The Makefile needed tweaking. These changes may well be specific for my machine.
CC_OPTS line:
-I/usr/include/g++ added
-L/usr/X11/lib changed to /usr/X11R6/lib
-ltk4.0 changed to -ltk4.1
-ltcl7.4 changed to -ltcl7.5
-ldl added

That's it.
Hopefully this will help anyone else who is having the same problems as me.
All I need now are some gel files to test it out on! :-)

Thanks *very* much to everyone who helped!!
