Aaaah... OK. You know, you should tell Phil Thompson or (better)
the mailing list about that, otherwise Phil Thompson won't know
about this issue and won't fix it.

No, I don't think it's OK. libsip should be a module (or
bundle), not a shared library. SIP 3.2rc3 was supposed to
fix this, but it maybe didn't.
This is why I had asked whether SIP uses "-bundle" instead
of "-dynamiclib" when linking the Python modules. I guess
it doesn't. You should double check that.

On the other hand Python expects a module named libsip.so
module, not libsip.9.0.0.so. Make sure that there's a
libsip.so in the Python subdirectories.
> What do you think about this?
You're in one of the above two situations. You'll have
to check which one:
- Is "-bundle" used when linking?
- Is there a libsip.so file in Python?
After changing the link process for
sip (again), I could do an import for libsip
So *this* works (for sip-3.2rc2 __not__ rc 3!), if you change the
c++ -dynamiclib ...
c++ -bundle ...
In the meantime I changed (by hand) in the directory PyQt-32.rc2 the
in the configure made Makefile to
and now the compile/link-process is running,
it will take a while to complete ...
Hopeful, I'll succeed.
I want to thank all the guys, who made this process possible.
Thank you so very much.
