There's apparently an error in the way configure.py is generating files for 
KDE 3.3.1. It does two things that are relevant here: it generates a list of 
files to generate bindings from (*.sip files) depending on the KDE version, 
and it generates a version identifier that's used for conditional code 
generation. What's probably happening is the list generated doesn't match the 
version, because KDE 3.1.3 was released for KDE <= 3.3.0.

I don't have a quick fix. The one thing you could try as a workaround is to 
modify /usr/local/kde3.3.1/include/kdeversion.h as follows:

#define KDE_VERSION_STRING "3.3.0"



and then change it back after PyKDE builds.

I haven't tested PyKDE against KDE 3.3.1 yet, so I can't guarantee it will 
build. There's a good chance it will. A KDE 3.3.1 compatible release is at 
least a few weeks away.
