There are two possible problems here:

1. Have you compiled wxWindows according to the build instructions in 
Build.OSX.txt before running setup.py?

2. You may need to add /usr/local/bin to your PATH. Just type the 
following into the terminal before building:

setenv PATH /usr/local/bin:$PATH

This command assumes you're using tcsh as your terminal shell. As a 
side note, I've heard rumors that Panther uses Bash as the default 
shell now, but I just upgraded Friday and mine is still using tcsh. Has 
anyone does a clean install, and if so, has your shell changed to bash? 
You can find the default shell with 'echo $SHELL'.
