Did you install tcl, gdbm and Berkly DB? You don't need to, python works fine without them, but it may explain your error message

Hi Andrew Benton,

No. They are optional.

Python Dependencies, Optional
OpenSSL-0.9.7g, Tk-8.4.11, GDBM-1.8.3 and Berkeley DB-4.3.28

It does not mention "tcl" there.

Whether the error message is normal?

It doesn't mention tcl because tk depends on tcl. It is normal for people to read their own error messages and not expect other people to read them for you.
