Help on Tkinter installation

Well, thanks to some email and a fair amount of
time with Mr Google, I found that I needed to
update the Setup file. 

(Platform: RH 8.0)

Prior to this I installed ActiveTCL8.4 .

So I made what I thought were the appropriate
changes to the "tkinter" section of Setup, I went up
a level (to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/Python-2.3.2),
did a "make" and this is what I got:

   file libtk8.4.so does not exist

Well, when I do a locate, I find libtk8.4.so
in

   /usr/local/ActionTcl/lib/libtk8.4.so

So I am caught with some kind of path problem.

Any ideas or suggestions?

(And thanks to all the respondents so far)
