Hello all,

I am brand new to this list, not sure if this the right place to ask
this question. I have two AIX 5.1 64-bit  boxes and would like to have
Python on both of them but don't need any of the graphical elements
(Tk/Tcl/Tkinter). One of the boxes happened to have Tk/Tcl stuff
installed on it, so I was able to build Python 2.3.2 without a hitch. 

The other box does not have Tk/Tcl installed, and I don't particularly
need it there. Below is the error message I get when attempting to make:

Stop.

Is there any way to build without including tkinter support? (Or am I
just doing something wrong????)

Thanks for any help at all . . .
