Well, installing PIL is indeed the hardest part in getting Sketch to
work. If you tell what went wrong when you tried to compile PIL, I could
perhaps help you.

Note also that some Linux distributions include Sketch (and therefore
also PIL), e.g. SuSE 7.0, Mandrake 7.0 and Debian (the most obvious
exception being Red Hat), and that there are some pointers to PIL
packages Sketch's webpage.
