Hey all,

 This is probably a known issue and I don't mean to rush anyone but I
thought I'd bring it up since I don't think anyone else has.

 I've got KDE 3.3.2 (and don't want to downgrade), and pykde-3.11.3
(Gentoo refuses to combine these two but I overrid that and tried it
anyway), and this is the build error I get.  I'm wondering if this is
a known compatibility problem and a basic idea of when it might be


     PyKDE version 3.11.3

Python include directory is /usr/include/python2.3
Python version is 2.3.4

sip version is 4.1.1 (4.1.1)

Qt directory is /usr/qt/3
Qt version is 3.3.3

PyQt directory is /usr/share/sip
PyQt version is 3.13 (3.13.0)

KDE base directory is /usr/kde/3.3
KDE include directory is /usr/kde/3.3/include
KDE lib directory is /usr/kde/3.3/lib
KDE version is 3.3.2 (0x30302)

PyKDE modules will be installed in /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages
PyKDE .sip files will be installed in /usr/share/sip

PyKDE modules to be built:
   dcop kdecore kdesu kdefx kdeui kio kutils kfile kparts khtml
 kspell kdeprint kmdi

Generating the C++ source for the dcop module...
Creating the Makefile for the dcop module...

Generating the C++ source for the kdecore module...
sip: KLockFile::Ptr is undefined
Error: Unable to create the C++ code.

 I decided to jump into the world of KDE RAD (the articles on Ruby
actually made me want to jump in and get a feel for Ruby, but I hit a
roadblock and  jumped on the Python bandwagon, only to hit another
