FAQ
When I build python with tkinter support (Linux), the python interpreter
is linked to the tcl/tk shared libraries, thus making them a hard
dependency. That is unfortunate. A friend told me, Debian supports tkinter
via an autonomous extension module. I have looked at the Debian rules file
but wasn't able to discover the trick.

    Don't add _tkinter in Modules/Setup, or uncomment the *shared* line
    in Setup.
