Could I ask you a big favor? If you have some time, modify configure.py to add 
the two print stmts shown:

def check_distribution ():
    dist = glob.glob ("/etc/*-release")
    print "dist =", dist # <<=== add this print stmt

(at original line 582 - probably 583 after adding the print above)
    argv.append(string.join(["sip", mname, mname + "mod.sip"], "/"))

#    print string.join (argv)  <<=== uncomment this line

and post the output of the print statements. You can create a temporary 
directory for PyKDE to test this and terminate configure.py after the kdeui 
code is created (where your error msg was above) - don't need to do a 
complete rebuild.

The D_MANDRAKE feature should be disabled (-x D_MANDRAKE should be in the 
string formed from argv) and should do effectively the same thing you did 
with '//'.
