Assuming that the symbol is defined in your Qt shared library I would
suspect that it's not finding the library itself. Remember - the PYQT_LIBS
in the documentation is an example and may not be appropriate for your
setup. Compare it with the PyQt Makefiles that are generated for your
system to see if there are extra flags you need to specify.
