tkinter problem: no Button events

I decided to recompile Python 1.0.2 to get dynamic loading, which
required finding out why I didn't have it in the first place. I finally
figured it was because I had a command called "gcc" on my path, which,
even though it wasn't *the* gcc, seemed to cause the configure script
not use dynamic loading on SunOS 4.1.3. So I rebuilt with the Sun "cc",
and reinstalled the image, python libraries, *.a libraries, and include
files. I then turned to the Extensions/tkinter directory, and rebuilt a
python image containing tkinter, using the same shared libraries for Tcl
7.3 and Tk 3.6 I'd been using previously. After a few build problems
(see earlier message), I got a python image, and tried it out by
importing the "tst" module, which sure enough brought up a window. It
seems to be active, because moving the pointer in it causes it to spit
out location tuples to stdout, but button presses don't work. I deleted
everything and re-built; same results. Any ideas?
