Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

you've got all the other requirements also, right? make sure you got those.
according to the build instructions @ http://www.wxpython.org/BUILD.unix.txt
there are lines in the quote in bold. those are examples of the python command to build and install wxpython. they are only examples given the type of options you want. you will not run all three commands. you'll only run the python command once with the options you want to have set.
some of the flags are in italics in the below quote.
C. Change to the root wxPython directory and look at the setup.py
file. This is the script that configures and defines all the
information that Distutils needs to build wxPython. There are some
options near the begining of the script that you may want or need
to change based on your system and what options you have selected
up to this point, (sources from tar.gz or from CVS, etc.) You can
either change these flags directly in setup.py or supply them on
BUILD_GLCANVAS Set to zero if you don't want to build the
Open GL canvas extension module. If you don't
have OpenGL or compatible libraries then you'll
need to set this to zero.
BUILD_OGL Set to zero if you don't want to build the
Object Graphics Library extension module.
BUILD_STC Set to zero if you don't want to build the
wxStyledTextCtrl (the Scintilla wrapper)
USE_SWIG If you have edited any of the *.i files you
will need to set this flag to non-zero so SWIG
will be executed to regenerate the wrapper C++
and shadow python files.
D. To build and install wxPython you simply need to execute the
setup.py script. If you have more than one version of Python
installed, be sure to execute setup.py with the version you want to
build wxPython for. Depending on the permissions on your
site-packages directory you may need to be root to run the install
python setup.py build install
If you need to change any of the build flags that can also be done
on the setup.py command line, like this:
python setup.py BUILD_GLCANVAS=0 build install
If you are using GTK 2.x then you'll want to add these flags:
If you would like to install to someplace besides the Python
site-packages directory (such as to your home directory) then you
can add "--root=<path>" after the "install" command. To use
wxPython like this you'll need to ensure that the directory
containing wxPyrthon is contained in in the PYTHONPATH environment
you messed up the link in the quote somehow... actually seeing it in this edit box it looks like it's possible you just copied the text from the browser page. a lot of these forums shorten the displayed url. just click the link and you'll the get the choose mirror page. or if you need to copy the address, usually something like a right-click over the displayed text > copy location (or copy link location, etc) will work better for you.
