It looks like in Python 2.1.3, Tkinter gets built with distutils in
Python's setup.py. I fear I don't have a solution to your problem, as
detect_tkinter in Python 2.1.3's setup.py looks fine to me. Maybe you
have a very strange or broken Tcl/Tk setup on your machine. As a
temporary workaround, you could try to insert a return right at the
beginning of detect_tkinter in Python's setup.py.
I sincerly hope some Tkinter expert here can come up with a better
solution and help finding the real reason behind this.
