This is mostly a question for Martin, but perhaps someone else would also know.
I'm trying to build the 2.7 installers so I can backport the path option from 3.3, but I can't seem to figure out which version of Tix is necessary to have a complete build. So far any of them on http://svn.python.org/projects/external don't appear to be configured to work with the combination of tcl and tk that are used on 2.7, per the buildbot external scripts. It's another issue that Tix isn't even downloaded by the scripts, but I'll do it manually right now just to get this going.
Ah, 2.7. I was using a checkout of tix-8.4.3.x from Nov 13, 2010, one where python.mak was pointing to Tcl 8.5.2. It may not have been tagged.
In 2.7, it wasn't checked out out automatically because Tix requires the original Tcl/Tk path names, so building it automatically would have failed.
I updated the 2.7 buildbot scripts to pull in Tcl/Tk 8.5.15 a couple of weeks ago (see http://bugs.python.org/issue21303), but hadn't gotten anything done with Tix yet. It should just need python.mak updated to point to Tcl/Tk 8.5.15; it's on my list to get fixed as soon as I can.
