OK. But I found on RH9 and FC3, as well as on Windows, that tcl/tk
was preinstalled (or included with Python). I didn't find wxwidgets
preinstalled on any of those systems.

What about wxwidgets, which wxpython requires?

The installer is going to download more stuff? Yuccch, I'd rather not
need a network connection to do an install. Anyway, wxpython built ok
on FC3. The problem was wxwidgets, which needed an obsolete version
of GTK. I spent at least an hour or two messing around with it before
deciding it wasn't worth the hassle.
