That might have been clearer as python + tcl/tk installation.

No, two completely separate actions.

I believe _tkinter is the only one of those you need to run idle.
You need tcl/tk installed/compiled first to compile python with

tcl/tk or easily install it with their package managers (same with some
of the other prerequisites for other modules).
