Well, it seems I have answered my own question at about three in the morning here.  For Linux2.0.6 with Caldera Preview 2 on top of Redhat 3.0.3 the Setup file
would require:

# *** ALWAYS enable this line:

# *** Enable *one* of the following lines:
# For Solaris:
#_tkinter _tkinter.c -I/usr/openwin/include -I/usr/local/include -L/usr/openwin/lib -L/usr/local/lib -ltk4.1 -ltcl7.5 -lX11
# For generic system (may have to add -I/-L options to find X11):
_tkinter _tkinter.c tkappinit.c tkImaging.c -I../Extensions/Imaging/libImaging -I/usr/include/tcl -DWITH_APPINIT -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/lib -ltk4.0 -ltcl7.4 -lX11 

This assumes that tkImaging.c has been copied to the Modules directory.
Also it should be complied as a module which is not the default in
Modules Setup file as you get a lot more debugging information if your
includes are wrong.  
Some of the problems to avoid are:
  By default the makes required by Makefile.pre.in are not done for 
shared libraries.  If you change Setup do not forget to do a make Makefiles
to create a new Makefile.  

Hopefully this will help some one else.
