[Image-SIG] Installing without root

I'm trying to install PIL 1.1.5 on my shared hosting server  
(Bluehost) for use with Django (a Python web application framework).

I ran setup.py with a custom prefix and it ran smoothly until it died  
on some Tk dependencies:

# python setup.py install --prefix=~/python_libs
ude -I/usr/include/python2.3 -c _imagingft.c -o build/temp.linux- 
gcc -pthread -shared build/temp.linux-i686-2.3/_imagingft.o -L/usr/ 
lib -lfreetype -o build/lib.linux-i686-2.3/_imagingft.so
building '_imagingtk' extension
creating build/temp.linux-i686-2.3/Tk
gcc -pthread -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -O2 -g -pipe -m32 - 
march=i386 -mtune=pentium4 -D_GNU_SOURCE -fPIC -fPIC -I/usr/include/ 
freetype2 -IlibImaging -I/usr/include -I/usr/include/python2.3 -c Tk/ 
tkImaging.c -o build/temp.linux-i686-2.3/Tk/tkImaging.o
Tk/tkImaging.c:51:16: tk.h: No such file or directory
Tk/tkImaging.c:73: error: syntax error before "clientdata"
Tk/tkImaging.c: In function `PyImagingPhotoPut':
Tk/tkImaging.c:77: error: `Tk_PhotoHandle' undeclared (first use in  
this function)

It looks to me like it can't find the tkImaging headers. How might I  
be able to work around this or give it access to the headers?

Thanks in advance,
