If you're building against KDE 3.1.2, you only need to worry 
about kzip.sip - that's what the %If (KDE_3_1_0 - ) in kzip.sip 
(and matching %If (- KDE_3_1_0  ) in global.sip) takes care of.

If you're using Python 2.3, you need to add 


in the %HeaderCode blocks (as you've done above) for both
%MappedType longlong and %MappedType ulonglong (both places). 
It's a change in name from Python < 2.3 (LONG_LONG) to Python == 
2.3 (PY_LONG_LONG). 

The next release (PyKDE-3.8rc3 - will be on sourceforge by the 
end of the week) has a better fix for this and should take care 
of it automatically.
