OS X ships with a version of python. Programs find this by looking at 
the locations specified via the PATH variable.

This means that if you install a custom version of python, then you can 
make it be used by altering PATH, or if you just need it to be used by 
TextMate, you can set the TM_PYTHON variable.

It’s unclear to me if you installed the networkx module for the system 
python, or you installed a completely new version of python with its own 
modules, but I do think you did the latter.

This means that you need to instruct TextMate to use this new version of 
python, e.g. by setting TM_PYTHON.

First though you need to figure out if a) this is actually what you did, 
and b) where this new version of python was installed.
