Yes, that would be bad.

Nope, my python2.2 is a Debian package installed into /usr which has 
/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages as it's platPySiteDir but it also has 
/usr/local/lib/python2.2/site-packages in sys.path. I'm using /usr/local for 
sip, pyqt and pykde just for neatness' sake. So, using platPySiteDir won't 
work but searching sys.path should.

I've just got a build.sh for each of sip, pyqt pykde and eric. I learned that 
trick after the third compile or so ;)

Nope, I've got mine built and I hope I don't have to build it again... it 
takes a while ;)
