The RPMs were my first attempt and built on a non-Red Hat system, so
there may be dependencies that aren't "standard".  Best thing to do is
to rebuild from the source tarballs - sip then PyQt then PyKDE.

I'll be building a Mandrake system soon so that may prove better for
creating RPMs in the future.
