wxGTK and wxPython not compatible anymore?

since the latest update of wxGTK, I cannot start anymore an
application relying on both wxGTK and wxPython.

I am under the impression that wxPython needs to be rebuilt or updated.
(I checked epel-testing to see if it was not in the pipe)

More details:

- the application is a locally built and packaged GRASS GIS 6.4RC6
started with the -wx option

- on a non-updated CentOS 5.4 x86_64, the application is starting properly.
yum list shows that:
  - the version of wxBase, wxGTK and wxGTK-gl is 2.8.9-2
  - the version of wxPython is

- on an updated CentOS 5.5 x86_64, the application fails to start with
the following error message:

ERROR: wxGUI requires wxPython.
symbol _ZN7wxSound6CreateEiPKh, version WXU_2.8 not defined in file
libwx_gtk2u_adv-2.8.so.0 with link time reference

yum list shows that:
  - the version of wxBase, wxGTK and wxGTK-gl is 2.8.11-1
  - the version of wxPython is

Moreover wxPython has apparently not been updated since Feb 21st 2008,
which led me to think that it finally "lost touch" with the actively
maintained wx* packages.

Am I right in my analysis?
Is wxPython still maintained, and is an update planned in the near future?
Or should I rather package my own wxPython?

Thanks in advance for your help!
