Yes but therefore we have the use option.  python is not the only package that
can be compiled
with tcl-tk support. If you have tcl-tk on your system, and you set the use
tcl-tk variable.
Everythin that can have tcl-tk support should get it.
At the moment I include all support that is possible if I build a package. But I
have a big use-ToDO
over here. :-)
