Unfortunately, no problems loading the library...

bash-2.05b$ python -c "from qtext import QextScintilla"

But, that got me thinking, so I started digging into the qscintilla ebuild. I 
installed qscintilla from a tarball using the same commands as the ebuild 
and... still errors. But, the commands were a very basic installtion 
sequence, so no surprise there.

So, I dug a little further back, and found this in the sip ebuild:
	python configure.py -l qt-mt

This shouldn't be a problem, since my qt libraries are built with x86_64 
threading support (as is glibc). In fact, I've used qt threads rather 
extensively on this machine for about 5 months with no problems.

But, rebuilding sip against the qt libs rather than qt-mt seems to resolve 
everything... and now the eric snapshot is working (and I would guess the 
released versions of eric as well). Why? I haven't a clue, but it does.

I'm going to modify the sip ebuild, and if it works out, I'll post a patch and 
a bug-fix for amd64 at bugs.gentoo.org.

Thanks for all your help Hans!
