Solution from Merlijn van Deen on core-mentorship list:
Let x be the directory containing both the repository directories, such 
as 'cpython' and the external dependency directories created by 
external.bat. Copy
x/tcl-8.5.11.0/win/Debug_VC10/tcl85g.dll
x/tk-8.5.11.0/win/Debug_VC10/tk85g.dll
to
x/cpython/PCbuild

Now, 'import tkinter', and hence idle, seem to work.
