And the 32bit AGTk RPMs work? I'm a bit surprised as x86-64 FC4's 64bit
Python need 64bit Python modules installed in
/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages. Did you install the 32bit python
from i386 FC4?

For building 32bit wxmozilla, you could try:
  rpmbuild --target=i386 --rebuild wxmozilla*.src.rpm

But you will need to have all the 32bit RPMs that wxmozilla
directly/indirectly depends on and links against, including Mozilla,
which could end up being a bit messy.

You can't mix 32bit libraries with 64bit in the same application.
