Thanks for the help, I think I found my problem.  For searching installed
packages, zypper is quite slow.  I have an alternative using the rpm
command but the arguments were wrong, causing the version parsing to fail.
That's been fixed and it seems that packages are now properly installed
(and not) as necessary.  However, it still doesn't help with the virtualenv
installation.  Seems that the pip packager uses distutils for a number of
packages that fail (wxpython, pycairo, pygobject, pygtk) in some cases b/c
they state explicitly that they can't use distutils for installation on
linux.  I can also try to forcebuild all of those.  I'll have to
investigate further.  Perhaps I'll try an install in the system python of a
openSUSE VM to see if it succeeds using zypper.  If so perhaps I could
submit a pull request.

Anyways, that's the story.
