pyslsk and wxpython

i installed wxpython from source as it specifies in the readme/install file. now when i try to run pyslsk (python soul seek) i get the following error. i think it has something to do that the directory that wxpython was installed in is not included in the 'search path' for pyslsk.

Can not find wxPython modules. Either wxPython is not
installed, or it's not in Python's module search path (it could be built
for a different version of python interpreter for example). The current
search path is
['/usr/bin', '/usr/lib/', '/usr/lib/python2.3', '/usr/lib/python2.3/plat-linux2', '/usr/lib/python2.3/lib-tk', '/usr/lib/python2.3/lib-dynload', '/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages']

installation of wxpython:

1. We'll be making a private copy of wxGTK so it doesn't conflict with
one used by wxGTK C++ apps that expect to have the default binary
installed from RPM or whatever. I put it in /usr/lib/wxPython, but
you can use whatever you like. I'll just set a variable to our wx
prefix to reference later:

export WXPREF=/usr/lib/wxPython

2. Make a build directory and configure wxGTK.

cd wxPythonSrc-2.4.0 # or whatever the top-level dir is
mkdir build
cd build
../configure --with-gtk \
--prefix=$WXPREF \
--enable-rpath=$WXPREF/lib \
--with-opengl \
--enable-geometry \
--enable-optimise \
--enable-debug_flag \
