You don't have to do that.  All that does is put the libs in a place
that the runtime linker will search.  Instead just tell the runtime
linker how to search in "/usr/local/lib/vtk-5.2".  You can do this by

$ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/vtk-5.2:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
$ python

This is a standard unix shared library thing.
