This bug will affect anyone building against KDE 3.2.3.

In sip/kdecore/kdecore-kde323.diff, delete the line:

  - %Include bytearray.sip

It should be the first line of the file.

Not sure how that got back in there, but it doesn't belong there 
(bytearray.sip is  the file that defines the return type sip is complaining 
about). Thinking about it, creating the docs (which I did after most of the 
version testing) modified that file - obviously I need to fix that.

Not sure which print stmt your referring to - the one that would print out the 
sip command line (only one I could find commented out)? It's not very likely 
to be useful except for debugging configure.py.

I'll put out a corrected release within a day or two - I'd like to collect any 
other obvious bugs that people find first.
