I am trying to install python with make install DESTDIR=/home/blah

./python -E ./ install \
                --prefix=/ \
                --install-scripts=//bin \
                --install-platlib=//lib/python2.6/lib-dynload \
running install
running build
running build_ext
INFO: Can't locate Tcl/Tk libs and/or headers

Failed to find the necessary bits to build these modules:
_tkinter           bsddb185           dl
imageop            sunaudiodev
To find the necessary bits, look in in detect_modules() for
the module's name.
