I do not understand if you are trying to build Python from sources
or from the rpm packages. I have found (under Red Hat 7.3) that it
is actually simpler to build from sources. The rpm dependencies
are mixed up and you must install the various rpm in a given order
to get it working. BTW, I have found problems in building Tkinter
from sources in a system with an old version of PMW installed, is
this your case?
