I also spent a couple hours googling for this same problem!  It's not
tough to figure it out but would have saved time and stress if i hit
the answer on my first search.

I am also using CentOS 4.4, 4.5 and python 2.4.4.  I debugged the
Python installation script to find that the tk.h/tcl.h headers are
missing.  Installing the tk-devel package (using yum) installs the
headers. Then re-install Python.
