Your PATH looks fine, the build messages look fine, so your guess looks
correct. SetupTK does make some assumptions about your Tcl/TK install.
The important thing is that the "trees" option in tk.cfg names
the directory the holds the tcl8.N and tk8.N directories. 

Some tcl/tk tools will put the .dlls into windows/system, which throws 
off the search for the tcl/tk lib files. You can just edit tk.cfg 
manually. Here's what mine looks like:

[TK]
type = CARCHIVE
name = tk.pkg
trees = D:\Programs\Tcl\bin\../lib
support = 0
installscript = installTK.py
extypes = .lib
expatterns = demos, images
