build.py failed while trying to delete the dcop directory (which 
it tries to do before generating a new set of C++ files for each 
module). Usually the reason this happens is because you don't 
have write permission for either the PyKDE-3.7-4 directory or 
for PyKDE-3.7-4/dcop/. It happens to me when I've run build.py 
as root and then tried to re-run it as a user. Fixing write 
permsissions ont he PyKDE directories (the ones created when you 
untarred PyKDE) should solve it.

If that isn't the cause, let me know and I'll investigate
