It's failing while trying to find /usr/include/qt from your -i 
above  (assuming build.py read the option correctly too).
I'm not sure if the "TypeError" is meaningful or not.

Could you try this? In PyKDE-3.8.0/build/discover.py, add the 
print stmt as shown  before line 58:

        if not searchEntry:

	print searchEntry
        if os.path.isdir (searchEntry)\

and let me know what prints out there?

The call to this code is originating in the "discoverQt" method 
if you need or want to inverstigate further. The cause of the 
error should be somewhere in that region.
