This is a known problem, which has since been fixed (in the current
CVS version). If an error occurs while initialising Tk, the above
message is printed instead of a usable error message and backtrace.

Note: the update won't necessarily solve whatever problem caused the
Tk initialisation to fail, but it will produce a meaningful error
message, allowing the underlying problem to be determined.

Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any updated binaries; you would need
to build them yourself from the CVS source.
