[PyKDE] PyQt Problems compiling with Qt 2.1.1

I have been trying to get the PyQt module to compile
with Qt 2.1.1 and can't get it work.
The configure and make both seem to work fine, but when i do a make
install, it dies one heck of a horrible death. I got a following error.

ImportError: dynamic module does not define init function (initlibqtc)

Environment: HP-UX10.20, Python1.5.2, Qt-2.1.1, sip-0.12, PyQt-0.12

Thanks for any help,

Libraries have been installed in:

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use `-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the `SHLIB_PATH' environment variable
     during execution
   - use the `-Wl,+b -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.
