The command does not complete successfully and since you did not ask for the possible error output from the command you just asked me to use I won't post the error messages in this post. Actually, I should state that I'm using slackware-current 64 bit linux which is not a stable release so it could possibly be the fault of the linux distro I'm using and not the fault of calibre I suppose (or it could be my fault by possibly not compiling the dependency packages with the right configuration options) . Only reason why I'm using the -current tag release is because slackware 12.2 does not have 64 bit support only the next release of slackware will support 64 bit processors. Although not a stable official release so far slackware-current has given no other problems besides this (seems to be pretty stable to me so far overall).
