well, as I read that text, it describes two *different*
ways to install PIL. the package support was mostly
added to help the Zopers...

in 1.0, you can link the Tk interface code into _tkinter.so
or _imaging.so. in 1.0.1 (out soon), you can link it either
into _tkinter.so, or into _imagingtk.so. it has to be some-
where, you know...

last minute fix; we tested this with 8.1, and had no trouble
linking it (8.1 is built as a shared library by default). before
shipping, I changed that to 8.0 and didn't test it on a clean
machine (8.0 is not built as a shared library by default...)
this has been fixed in 1.0.1.
