You are overlooking something, but it is not obvious, and it is likely
not a bug in Python.

__eprintf is traditionally a symbol from libgcc.a, and gets into
object files whenever the source code has assert().

It appears that your Tk installation was made with a gcc version that
had assert implemented with __eprintf. Could it be that you have
changed gcc versions since?  If so, you need to recompile Tk (or,
alternatively, link python and/or with the gcc version
that was used to link Tk)
