I'm having good results so far with the latest mainline sip (4.4.2 ) and PyQt 
(3.16) and KDE 3.5.2, FreeBSD 6. This KDE version (committed  to ports ~ a 
month ago, I found out ~ a week ago) was broken with the last PyKDE snapshot. 
People were complaining. So, I'm happy now :) 

I also set the build/generate concat level to 4 for all archs from now on 
(thanks Torsten), to prevent unpleasant surprises. It doesn't seem to take 
longer compared to j=1 (though I can imagine that without concat or 
j=verylarge it would).

One little thing I noticed (Jim): in the docs, most href problems are solved 
now, except in the classref, the link to the main index has a 
superfluous "doc/classref/<module_name>/" in it. I left it this way for now 
as I didn't see a quick way to sed them all into submission, and I don't want 
numerous lines of reinplacing in my port's Makefile.

Thanks guys for your work and helpfulness,
