luckily we have added annotateException which should allow us to modify the
existing exception and provide some more information
To the OP you could try changing
raise RuntimeError('Imaging Library not available, unable to import bitmaps only
annotateException('\nImaging Library not available, unable to import bitmaps
and see if that helps to get more information.
