I have just generated (and tested) "_tkinter" with tcl/tk 8.3.0
under Linux/glibc2.
As for 8.2.2 and unlike 8.1, there were no patches needed.
Of cause, I had to edit "Modules/Setup" to get "_tkinter" compiled
and linked with the correct tcl/tk headers/libraries.

I would expect the same behaviour for Solaris (but not for Windows).
I do not expect the core to be related with an incompatibility
between Python 1.5.2 and tcl/tk 8.3.0.
