[PyKDE] RE: PyKDE compile error

I will need to review this further on my workstation at work but I already
know that I was running the script as root so it might not be permission

I encountered this error while running an emerge pykde from gentoo so the
compile process is automated, it could therefore be a problem with the way
the ebuild was put together.

I think maybe the reason is that it tries to delete the kde 3.1.3 dcop
directory and I'm in fact using kde-cvs, that may have thrown the build
script off... I did notice a message in the script about configuring itself
for kde 3.1.3

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 further.
