[triangle-zpug] What Plone doc should I read?

Looking at the zope logs, I saw stack traces due to missing PIL.

Re-running the unified installer and carefully capturing all output, I found
(in the midst of 3MB of text output) that PIL failed to compile. It is a
mystery to me why the PIL setup.py couldn't find /usr/include/tcl8.4/tk.h .
It compiled python Ok, _tkinter and all, so *something* had to have been
able to find tk.h ...

I'm not sure who to blame yet, except that the installer could have done a
couple more basic sanity checks...
