[MMTK] Tk install problem

Hello all,

I'm hoping someone out there can help with (hopefully) the last of my 
problems.  I am 
trying to install Tkinter on my Mac OSX 10.3.  The build and install phases of 
the Tcl/Tk 
scripts ran smoothly, concluding with such hopeful messages as ** BUILD 
Apparently not, because when I tried to run Tkinter from a Python prompt, I 
received the 

>>> from Tkinter import *
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
Tkinter.py", line 38, in ?
    import _tkinter # If this fails your Python may not be configured for Tk
ImportError: No module named _tkinter

Does anyone know how I can fix this?  I have heard that I may need to 
recompile Python, 
but I'd like to avoid that if possible.  Is there any easy fix?
