There should be a snapshot posted at riverbankcomputing (snapshots/PyKDE) in a 
few days. I've started patching some of the recent problems (like building 
against 3.3.1) and generating PyKDE for KDE 3.3.1. Rather than make everybody 
wait for a full release (which may be a while), I'll be releasing snapshots 
over the next few weeks.

I haven't got to the Mdk 10.1 problem yet, but will get that fixed eventually. 
You'll also need the snapshot version of PyKDE to build against the upcoming 
sip 4.2. Phil found a minor bug in PyKDE, and that'll be fixed in the next
