[PyKDE] missing pythonize.h in PyKDE-3.11rc1?

I am trying to install Simon's guidance on my debian sid machine, but I 
encountered the following problem. 

running build_kcm
libtool --mode=compile g++ -pthread -c -g -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O3 
-Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -I/usr/include -I/usr/include

-I/usr/include/qt3 -I. serviceconfig/kcm_serviceconfig.cpp -o 
 g++ -pthread -c -g -fno-strict-aliasing -DNDEBUG -g -O3 -Wall

serviceconfig/kcm_serviceconfig.cpp  -fPIC -DPIC -o 
serviceconfig/kcm_serviceconfig.cpp:11:23: pythonize.h: No such file or 

(I cut off the rest of the backtrace.)
As you might have expected, line 11 in kcm_serviceconfig.cpp is

#include <pythonize.h>

I do not have pythonize.h on my system, but there is a libpythonize.html in 
the doc/ of PyKDE, which says that libpythonize should be included in the 
PyKDE distribution, but apparently it's not. The doc is headed with "version 
3.7", so I'm not sure if my PyKDE is up to date.

PyKDE is version 3.11rc1. There seems to be PyKDE 3.8 around, but on 
sourceforge, I could only find a Mandrake RPM, which wouldn't link to 
libsip.so here. (I converted them with alien.) According to this ML, 3.11rc1 
is the latest release. Compiling PyKDE went 'okayish', apart from the - 
already mentioned - problems importing modules. (libkdefx... IIRC). I 
workarounded that by adding site-packages/ to ld.so.conf as a temporary 

Here's a list of my relevant installed software:
pyqt-tools                        3.11-3 
python-qt-dev                     3.11-3
python-qt3                        3.11-3 
python-qtext                      3.11-3
python2.3-qt3                     3.11-3
python2.3-qtext                   3.11-3
python2.3-sip-qt3                 3.10.1-2
sip                               3.10.1-2
g++ (GCC) 3.3.3 (Debian 20040429)
libtool                           1.6-0+1.5a-3
Python 2.3.3 (#2, May  1 2004, 06:12:12)
KDE 3.2.2

Finally, here's my list of questions:
(1) Do I already have the latest version? If not, where can I get a source 
package of the newest? (I'm a little confused about the version numbering.)
(2) How can I fix this error? :-)

Thanks in advance,

enjoying it.
