The line marked above should read:
-L /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages

(not sure how that happened, but I'll check it out in the current 

You should be able to edit that line in  pykpanelapplet/Makefile, 
and this time DON'T run build.py, just run 'make' (should save 
you a half hour of build/compile at least).

Alternatively, if you're not interested in panel applets, you can 
just ignore it and run (as root this time) 'make install'. It 
will fail at the end (and probably try to re-link 
libpykpanelapplet), but everything else should work.

Either way, a quick test to make sure it installed correctly is 
to run (still in the PyKDE to-level directory):

    python importTest.py

If that can import all of the PyKDE modules (which is all it 
tests) the odds are good that everything should work.
