yum could not resolve path

Hi Friends,

I am installing pidgin on my older Fedora6.I simply gave following command:
>yum install pidgin
but it gave following errors:
Error: Missing Dependency: libtcl8.4.so is needed by package libpurple
Error: Missing Dependency: libtcl8.4.so is needed by package tk
Error: Missing Dependency: tcl = 8.4.13 is needed by package tk

When i searched on my PC, i have found all these packages in /usr/local/lib.
So how should i tell yum about this path?
I tried setting the PATH also but that too failed.
