Hmm... something is fish, because the error message you printed in
your first message is triggered only by an attempt to import gtk.
Look in setup.py: here is what is happening
print 'GTK requires pygtk'
BUILD_GTK = 0
print 'pygtk present but import failed'
I submit that something is different in your build environment in
which you triggered the original message and the one you are testing
