You're right, the tkinter included with the 2.6.2 installer is not 
linked properly:

Is:
$ cd /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6
$ cd lib/python2.6/lib-dynload
$ otool -L _tkinter.so 
_tkinter.so:
   /System/Library/Frameworks/Tcl.framework/Versions/8.4/Tcl 
(compatibility version 8.4.0, current version 8.4.0)
   /System/Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/Versions/8.4/Tk 
(compatibility version 8.4.0, current version 8.4.0)
   /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib [...]

should be:
_tkinter.so:
   /Library/Frameworks/Tcl.framework/Versions/8.4/Tcl (compatibility 
version 8.4.0, current version 8.4.19)
   /Library/Frameworks/Tk.framework/Versions/8.4/Tk (compatibility 
version 8.4.0, current version 8.4.19)
   /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib [...]
