In PyKDE-3.11rc1/sip/dcop/dcopmod.sip.in, find the %Timeline stmt and add to 
the end:


In PyKDE-3.11rc1/configure.py, modify the kdetags to look like:

    kdetags = {
        0x030001: "KDE_3_0_0",
        0x030003: "KDE_3_0_1",
        0x030100: "KDE_3_0_3",
        0x030101: "KDE_3_1_0",
        0x030102: "KDE_3_1_1",
        0x030103: "KDE_3_1_2",
        0x030104: "KDE_3_1_3",
        0x030105: "KDE_3_1_4",
        0x030200: "KDE_3_1_5",
        0x030201: "KDE_3_2_0",
        0x030202: "KDE_3_2_1",
        0x030203: "KDE_3_2_2",
        0x040000: "KDE_3_2_3"

(you'll need to change the existing last line and add the last three lines 
shown above).

Actually, it seems unlikely those would cause the problem you're seeing, but 
the changes should be made anyway.

Make sure that PyKDE-3.11rc1/sip/kdecore/kpty.sip exists too.

Even with those changes, I wouldn't guarantee it will build, compile, link and 
load, but it's worth a try. If 3.2.3 is binary compatible with 3.2.2 (and 
there probably are few if any changes), it should work.
