_imagingtk is a binary extension.  On Linux systems, it's usually
available as a separate package called "python-imaging-tk".

Check with your system administrators if they can install it for you
(or if you feel adventurous, install a local copy of python-imaging
and python-imaging-tk in your home directory).
