Tk should normally build without any additional arguments. Something else went wrong here.
Nothing is wrong with Tk :) It just needs an extra argument on the initial Makefile.PL command line.
Maybe that could be addressed with CPAN.pm's new support for "distroprefs". That should be able to automatically add the necessary keyword on Win32.
As for expat/XML::Parser, maybe an Alien::expat module would solve the problems: easy installation of XML::Parser, and keeping the Strawberry Perl distribution small.
