Nevermind, I compiled linuxcnc on my machine with this instructions below:
http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Build_A_Simulator_Manually

Note: there's no need to

 sudo apt-get purge tcl8.4-dev tk8.4-dev


because:

1 both tcl and tk are 8.5 now.

2 I need these file to run ROS-F, so I didn't remove tcl8.5-dev and
tk8.5-dev, and my sim runs perfect.
