Well, we want to build universal binaries, so we do need the SDK.

Sorry, I should have written /System/Library/. You find Tcl
in /System/Library, but not in

Anyway, this doesn't appear to matter, since setup.py picks up the
files from a different dir: /System/Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework
and that is included in the SDK.

As I said: The fix makes the build work, so it's good enough for
now. In the future all this may will have to be revisited.
