Notice the hashbang there.  Is it finding CSW's python, the virtualenv
python or the system python?  If it's finding the system python,
that's likely the problem.  Is /opt/csw/bin leading your path?  Above
you called ggrep without qualification so /opt/csw/bin is likely in
your path but then you called /opt/csw/bin/python so maybe it doesn't
have precedence over the system path's?

The documentation says that it does this intentionally.  It's likely
to help with things like the built-in pip that it also adds?

This would depend on which packages you have installed, I think.  It
exists on the buildfarm boxes because we have CSWpydes installed, but
it's possible that it wouldn't be on your box...I wouldn't symlink it
though, I'd just create the tree, or better, install something that
delivers it for you like CSWpydes.  This _may_ be something that
should be addressed in the python package but I don't know for sure.

Hope this helps.  Once we know about your PATH settings things might
be clearer so we can provide better analysis.
