[PyKDE] PyQt 3.5 build problems

Just to follow up on my own posting... The problems stems from the fact that
the Qt code was compiled without the -fPIC option and as a result, the
libqassistantclient.a static library contained code that was not position
independent and the linker was unable to include it in the libqtcmodule.so
shared library. Once I rebuilt Qt with the -fPIC option to the QMAKE_CFLAGS
field of mkspecs/default/qmake.conf, PyQt built and seems to run just

I'm having trouble building the latest PyQt on Solaris 5.8. I'm using Qt
3.1.1, SIP 3.5 and PyQt 3.5. The problem looks to be on the linking of
libqtcmodule.so. The linker gives an error message as:

  ld: fatal: relocations remain against allocatable but non-writable
  collect2: ld returned 1 exit status 

I've attached the trace from make. Has anyone else encountered any problems
like this?
