Summary: python 2.5 install can't find tcl/tk in /usr/lib64

Initial Comment:
Hi,

I'm trying to compile python 2.5 RC1 under opensuse
10.1 on a 64-bit AMD athlon.  Although the README says
it will auto-detect tcl/tk, and setup tkinter
appropriately, it doesn't.  Among other things, this
means idle can't use this python version.  I have
tcl/tk, the libraries, devel packages, anything that
seemed relevant in YaST installed. I think the problem
is my tcl/tk libs live in /usr/lib64.  It seems, based
on the file Modules/Setup generated by ./configure,
that the python installer doesn't see these libs.

>From perusing the web there seems to be a fair amount
of pain caused by /lib vs /lib64 dir names.  In fact an
older post to the forum identifies the same issue (just
search for lib64 if this link is busted):

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1294959&group_id=5470&atid=105470

It would be very nice if this were somehow handled
automatically, or at least give detailed instructions
in the README (search the doc for lib64 returns nothing).

Cheers,
David
