The header files were there (/usr/lib/tcl), and that is why I managed to
compile just by uncommenting the lines in Modules/Setup.  I didn't
install any -devel packages in the meanwhile.
I'll give it a shot again remotely when the machine reaches our client
(we must send it tomorrow).

Ah, thank you.  Given that they worked fine for me[1] on ia64, I will
post a patch tomorrow afternoon which hopefully will be used when more
success reports on 64-bit machines come in.

[1] the tests ran, and I tried the following on a Windows python, a
32-bit Linux and the ia64 one side-by-side:

print audioop.max("hello there!", 2)

and I got 29285 in all three of them
