Have you tried checking the wxPython site itself (www.wxpython.org)?  There
are detailed build instructions for win32 and unix (the unix version is at
http://wxpython.org/BUILD.unix.txt), and if you can't find the answer to
your problems there (or already looked with no success), then ask this
question on the wxpython-users mailing list.  Robin Dunn, the author of
wxPython, is *very* good about answering questions there.
