I have currently trying to get PyQt2.2 running on my FreeBSD box. Everything seems to compile fine but in make install I get the following error:

/bin/sh ../mkinstalldirs /usr/local/lib/python2.0/site-packages
 /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./qt.py /usr/local/lib/python2.0/site-packages/qt.py
make  install-data-hook
(cd /tmp; PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/lib/python2.0/site-packages:/usr/local/lib/python2.0/site-packages python -c "import qt")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in ?
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.0/site-packages/qt.py", line 43, in ?
    import libqtc
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/python2.0/site-packages/libqtcmodule.so: Undefined symbol "__ti10QWorkspace"
*** Error code 1

Stop in /opt/build/sources/PyQt-2.2/qt.


My system configuration is as follows:

FreeBSD 4.2
KDE 1.4? desktop
Python 2.0 installed in /usr/local/...

build directory structure is:

QTDIR = /opt/build/sources/qt

Everything was built consecutively from the same environment.

qt built properly and runs examples properly
qt is built as a shared library (perhaps should be static lib?)
qt resides in QTDIR

sip configured properly (makefile points to QTDIR)
sip is installed in /usr/local/lib

PyQt seemed to configure and make properly 
(makefile points to 
SIP_CPPFLAGS =  -I/usr/local/include/python2.0 -I/usr/local/include/sip -I/opt/build/sources/qt-2.2.2/include  -I/usr/X11R6/include
SIP_LDLIBDIRS =  -L/usr/local/lib -L/opt/build/sources/qt-2.2.2/lib

I have searched the archives but haven't found a solution to this. Anyone have any ideas?
