I solved a similiar problem (on Ubuntu where I have python-vtk installed
in Ubuntu but wanted to use an 'ets co ets' and 'ets develop' with a
virtualenv with no system site-packages) by creating a symbolic link to
the file /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/python-support.pth to
/home/jvb/.virtualenvs/ETS_3.4.0/lib/python2.6/site-packages/. I was
then able to build MayaVi with the system VTK.

Hope that helps.
