At one point, Thomas Heller was working on a setup script for win32all
-- dunno what became of that.

Also, I thought Robin had a setup script for wxPython.  Haven't tried it 
or looked at it myself, though.

In other words, "stay tuned to this channel and see what pops up".  ;-)

Of course, if it were me, I'd just setup an NFS server and mount
/usr/local from it on all the machines... ;-)
