I did the latter. Then I needed to comment out additional lines in 

//%Include kcharsets.sip
//%Include kcmdlineargs.sip
//%Include klockfile.sip

At that point, I got an error that I have not been able to work around:

g++ -c -Wno-deprecated-declarations -pipe -fPIC -O2 -march=k8 -mtune=k8 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -Wall -W -D_REENTRANT -DQT_NO_DEBUG -DQT_CORE_LIB -DQT_GUI_LIB -I. -I../extra/kde404 -I/usr/kde/4.0/include -I/usr/include/qt4/QtCore -I/usr/include/qt4/QtGui -I/usr/include/qt4/QtNetwork -I/usr/kde/4.0/include/sonnet -I/usr/include/python2.5 -I/usr/share/qt4/mkspecs/default -I/usr/include/qt4 -I/usr/X11R6/include -o

configure.py fails if I comment out //%Include ktimezone.sip. I tried to find 
a work around similar to the one you suggested for KEncodingDetector, but was 
not successful. I also tried to understand what is actually causing 
these "can't use default assignment operator" errors, but unfortunately I 
don't have enough experience yet with C/C++ to follow the discussions I found 
on google. Sorry.
