I am trying to build PyQt4.5.1 against Qt 4.5.1 using Sip 4.8.1 and Python 2.5.1 on Linux amd64, but I'm getting this error immediately:

Platform: Redhat EL5 Linux, amd64

I'm using Python-2.5.1 built using 4 character unicode (UC4)
Qt 4.5.1
sip 4.8.1 configured with the above python
g++ 4.1.1

qpycore_chimera.cpp:392: error: too few arguments to function

When I looked at that line, it's calling:
base_type = sipResolveTypedef(raw_type.constData());

Which is defined in sipAPIQtCore.h' (line 7207)
#define sipResolveTypedef           sipAPI_QtCore->api_resolve_typedef

In sip.h, the api_resolve_typedef is defined as (line 1176)
    const char *(*api_resolve_typedef)(const char *name);

I created preprocessor output using the (-E) flag, and the function becomes:

    const char *(*api_resolve_typedef)(const char *name,
            const sipExportedModuleDef *em);

I'm not sure where the 'sipExportedModuleDef' part got added in there.
