I've sometimes had problems with builds missing preferences files and,
rather than copy from previous installations (what if its your 1st
installation, or what if there's a significant difference between
versions?), I've so far always been able to find them in the source
tree that I'm building from.
I see that the pylab_luts.pkl file is available in the tarball that
I'm using to build from (made from a recent svn co). Its at Mayavi/
enthought/mayavi/core/lut/pylab_luts.pkl and I'd expect its there in
your source tree too.
