There seems to be a problem with wxPython on Fedora Core 1 Linux,
if you install it as described above (s. main posting). E.g. when
right clicking on a TextCtrl, no popup-window appears but the
script crashes (seg fault). 

(More on this: s. the mailing list for wxPython.)

To avoid this (i.e. the seg faults), use the following to 
configure wxGTK (instead of the above):

     ../configure --prefix=$WXPREF \
                  --enable-rpath=$WXPREF/lib \
                  --with-opengl \
                  --enable-geometry \
                  --enable-optimise \
                  --enable-gtk2 \
                  --enable-unicode \
