NOTE: Please begin your posts with what platform (Linux/Mac/Windows) you are 
running on so we can answer your questions better.

 From ActiveState's webpage:

All platforms

         * Tcl/Tk 8.4.14 and Tix 8.4.2 upgrades.

It is certainly on my machine which is Windows ActiveState install.  You better 
check again.

If you are on Windows, you can use py2exe to package up your program and you 
won't have to have Python/Tk installation.
