I assume you are using the x86-64 FC3 RPMs from:

The problem is probably with wxMozilla, you don't need to intall that unless 
you want to run the SharedBrowser. If you want to intall it:

rpmbuld --rebuild wxmozilla-0.5.3-1.src.rpm
rpm -i /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/x86_66/wxmozilla-0.5.3-2.x86_64.rpm
rpm -i /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/x86_66/wxmozilla-python-0.5.3-2.x86_64.rpm

You could also try the x86-64 Fedora Extras wxGTK2* and wxPythonGTK2 RPMs 

The wx* RPMs (except for wxMozilla) on my site are slightly modified for 
x86_64 and rebuilt versions of the Fedora Extras 2 RPMs, it's because at the 
time I created them, the Fedora Extras 3 RPMs weren't available.
