Well, to build PyKDE 3.11[PyQt-3.11,sip-3.10.1] with KDE 3.2.1, all it 
take is:

for i in $(find sip -name \*-kde320.diff); do
    o=$(echo $i | sed "s|kde320|kde321|g")
    i=$(basename $i)
    ln -s $i $o
ln -s kde320 extra/kde321

and a little (dirty) quickfix (attached). I found a small glitch
in configure.py, concerning the -d option (attached). Please apply 
this one, Jim.

kab would be be 1000 times more useful for an average PyKDE hacker, 
then kjs, which seems only useful for a full featured PyKDE based 
web browser. BTW, does anybody know, if khtml pick up js 
automatically, or is some kjs activation stub needed?
