[PyKDE] Compilation problems

Hi Jan,

I do not know if this is the origin of ALL you problems,
but if you want to install PyQt-2.5, I would advise you to install
sip-2.5 first (even without regenerating the C++-code, because
the libraries and header files of sip-2.4 may be incompatible
with PyQt-2.5).
