Rebuilding / reinstalling a couple of packages made it work again, so I can go 
on working and I am looking forward to a python 2.4 toolchain.

Seems like Debian is not the only one bitten by an incompatible SIP, I heard 
the same problem from a Gentoo user. Kubuntu does not have the stuff complete 
yet also, but I suppose that this will all settle down once the 2.4 toolchain 
is complete.

Thanks for your work, the packages are working great (most of the time :>).
