[Python-Dev] Fix python darwin build to look for non-framework Tk if not a framework build?

Python's own setup.py file seems to only look for a Framework Tcl/Tk on 
darwin. This is a headache if one is trying to build a non-framework 
python that uses a non-framework tcl/tk.

Any chance of getting this fixed? I'm willing to work on a patch if it 
has any chance of being accepted. Any hints on how to determine if it is 
a framework build from within setup.py would be most welcome!
