From what I understand from other on-line sources, RedHat chose NOT to
include Tkinter in it's python install.
In my case I downloaded the latest Python tgz file from python.org
(which includes Tkinter, supposedly) and did the configure-make-make
install, but it *Still* is unable to find the necessary files to access
Tkinter libs. I've fiddled with all the available environment
variables, "locate"ed the Tkinter file - no luck. I've asked the
follow-on question relating to this: to wit, "OK What do I do now?" or
"What did I miss and get wrong?"
