The last line would seem to be the problem. In Qt3, QList is renamed to 
QPtrList, but Qt should provide a qlist.h header file for compatibility.

Here's qlist.h from my system (not Debian):

#ifndef QLIST_H
#define QLIST_H
#ifndef QT_NO_COMPAT
#include "qptrlist.h"

Check to see if you have qlist.h, and if so, perhaps QT_NO_COMPAT is getting 
defined someplace. You can get around that by commenting out the #ifndef 
QT_NO_COMPAT and #endif in the above.

Alternatively, you can find the one instance of qlist.h in 
PyKDE/sip/kdeui/klistview.sip and change it to qptrlist.h and see if that 
fixes the problem. That should be the only occurrance.
