_tkinter built fine for me, with Python 2.3.1, on a Debian/ia64
system.  If it was not built for you, most likely, you forgot to
install the header files.

audioop and imageop are not build because of this code in setup.py:

        # Multimedia modules
        # These don't work for 64-bit platforms!!!
        # These represent audio samples or images as strings:

        # Disabled on 64-bit platforms
        if sys.maxint != 9223372036854775807L:
            # Operations on audio samples
            exts.append( Extension('audioop', ['audioop.c']) )
            # Operations on images
            exts.append( Extension('imageop', ['imageop.c']) )
            # Read SGI RGB image files (but coded portably)
            exts.append( Extension('rgbimg', ['rgbimgmodule.c']) )
