Todd Hesla stumbled over this:

> ImportError: /usr/local/lib/ undefined symbol: XtStrings

make sure you have libXt and friends included during your linker phase:

(gustav)~/: ldd /usr/local/lib/ => /usr/local/lib/ (0x40717000) => /usr/local/lib/ (0x407e2000) => /usr/lib/ (0x409b5000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40a9a000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40aa6000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40af0000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40af9000) => /usr/X11R6/lib/ (0x40b11000) => /lib/ (0x40bb7000) => /usr/lib/ (0x40bba000) => /lib/ (0x40bff000) => /lib/ (0x40c1b000)
        /lib/ => /lib/ (0x80000000)

i recall having to add one of these libX* above to avoid getting the
undefined symbol error.
