Installing Python and Tkinter on OSX

Dear Python Help,

	I am trying to install Python with Tkinter on my Mac OS X PowerBook G4 
platform, but having some difficulties apparently with missing 
directories and files. I can build Python without Tkinter okay, but 
when I try to build with Tkinter it doesn't seem to build the 
appropriate directories or files. For example, in version Python 2.3b1, 
I have the directory build/lib.darwin-6.6-Power_Macintosh-2.3, which 
contains In the released version of Python 2.3, I no 
longer have the build/lib.darwin-6.6-Power_Macintosh-2.3 directory, 
which contains among other things the file which I need for 
Tkinter to build.

	How can I get Python 2.3 to build with Tkinter? How can I get it to 
build the directory build/lib.darwin-6.6-Power_Macintosh-2.3? Is there 
something that I'm missing in the "configure"?

	Any help is most appreciated.....

Best regards,
