As far as I can tell, 'sipLazyAttrDef' did not appear in sip until
version 3.1. Try 'sip -V' at the command line - you should get back
'3.0'. If not, you may have a previous build of sip3.1 still
installed. The version I use is libsip.so.7.0.0. libsip.so should
link to that, and that should be the lib listed in libsip.la.

If that's the case, you should be able to delete the 3.1 libs
(usually in /usr/local/lib) and re-install sip 3.0. You may also
need to rebuild PyQt after correcting the libsip versions (not
sure, but I think so). If it isn't a sip version problem, please
post again.

If you have the alpha4 release, it would be worthwhile to get the
alpha6  release of PyKDE2 which is now available at theKompany.

PyKDE2 is not compatible with sip 3.1 (yet).
