"pythonpoint.xml" lives in the reportlab/tools/pythonpoint/demos 
directory.  Foolishly, pythonpoint.py does not complain if the source 
file does not exist.  It simply does nothing, silently, which is exactly 
what you're seeing.

Do this:
  cd /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/reportlab/tools/pythonpoint/demos
  python ../pythonpoint.py pythonpoint.xml

That is, assuming you have write permission in the Python site-packages 
directory.  If not, perhaps you should do this:
  cd ~
