Just some info about the Python bindings for people who are packaging or just 
compiling kdebindings. Once you've got the python bindings compilied and 
perhaps packaged be sure to do a quick test using the importTest.py program 
located in the python/pykde directory. This program tries to load/import all 
of the bindings and provides a simple sanity check to guard against 
linking/compiling problems.

There have been a few reports of trouble in combination with gcc and the new 
symbol visibility hiding feature. I think gentoo has a gcc 3.4 available that 
also include visibility support, and problems are showing up there but I'm 
not entirely certain. Just try out the release canidate and run
