pygtk error when installing solfege

I want to install solfege, and I've tried about 5 different ways of doing it, none of which I can get to work. I finally got it to configure and make successfully, but trying to run it gives me the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 43, in ?
    import src.mainwin
  File "/usr/local/src/solfege-3.4.0/src/", line 105, in ?
  File "/usr/local/src/solfege-3.4.0/src/", line 66, in init
    setup_pygtk((2, 4))
  File "/usr/local/src/solfege-3.4.0/src/", line 42, in setup_pygtk
    import pygtk
ImportError: No module named pygtk
I have a valid version of pygtk (2.4.1) installed. Trying to install using the autopackage also tells me pygtk is not installed. Any ideas?

but you did
"sudo make install"
didnt you?
if not do so and run
"sudo ldconfig"
as gtk is involved

hope that helps but just guessing...
cheers, j.

Running ldconfig didn't change anything, but I wound up doing a successful upgrade of gtk+, and now run into different issues. This time, I configure and make solfege, and make exits with the following:

You have to install xml2po to run 'make update-manual'
*** Cannot rebuild html docs because we are missing the docbook stylesheet.
*** Try to install the missing software and reconfigure.
*** Run make as 'make skipmanual=yes' to ignore the problem and don't build the docs
exit -1
make: *** [help/C/index.html] Error 255
If I try make skipmanual=yes, "make install" fails with basically the same error. I can't find xml2po anywhere, and can't see why I need it.
