I think it was on the list already that the perldoc in Mandrake is a 
separate (and not default package). This might be a similar problem.

Have ou tried the following ?

   perldoc -l Tk

This should show the location of the module and in my case it shows a 
.pod file so it seems Tk has its documentatin separated from the real code
and I guess Mandrake was on the diskspace saving side again.
