Probably, your local sip/PyQt maintainer provides some matching -devel 
packages somewhere, since without these files, you cannot build any 
descendant packages ({python-}qscintilla, PyKDE, PyQwt, ..).

Don't provide build logs via paste bin services, please. When they 
vanish, followers by search engines will fail.

This looks like the usual installed by packetmanager/from source 
dichotomy (for package sip in your case).
