distutils problem: using wrong compiler and specs

I've got a system where I try to install extensions using

/usr/local/bin/python setup.py install

But, it fails when it tries to use a non-existant compiler path
and specs file. I suspect it's trying to use the compieler
that was used to build /usr/bin/python.

How do I get it to use the compiler settings that were used for

Here's an example of the failure when I try to install pygame:

~/pygame/pygame-1.7.1release ~/pygame
sh: line 1: smpeg-config: command not found
Using UNIX configuration...

WARNING, No "Setup" File Exists, Running "config.py"

Hunting dependencies...
WARNING: "smpeg-config" failed!
SDL : found 1.2.12
FONT : not found
IMAGE : not found
MIXER : not found
SMPEG : not found
NUMERIC : not found
Warning, some of the pygame dependencies were not found. Pygame can still
compile and install, but games that depend on those missing dependencies
will not run. Would you like to continue the configuration? [Y/n]:
If you get compiler errors during install, doublecheck
the compiler flags in the "Setup" file.
