Tix and OS X

Does python not ship with Tix for OS X? I know there was an issue with
2.5.0 and Tix on Windows, and upgrading to 2.5.1 fixed it.
Unfortunately, I seem to have the same issue with OS X and 2.5.1. The
error I get is:

self.tk.eval('package require Tix')
_tkinter.TclError: can't find package Tix

I did find tkinter.so (Tkinter seems to work), but nothing matching
tix.so.
Is this a known issue? I haven't found any information about it on the
web or in this group.

Thanks in advance.

This is an Intel Mac, btw.

You have to have the Tcl Tix package installed--the Python module just
wraps it.

Thanks, but I still find it strange that the tix so is not included
for the Mac. When dll was missing in Python 2.5 it was considered a
bug (www.python.org/sf/1568240).
