[Solved] Calibre 0.7.43/44 - Linux Compile Segmentation Fault

Hello,

I've recently encountered a segmentation fault when I try to update Calibre from the installed version of 0.7.42, to either .43 or .44, on my Gentoo Linux desktop, (kernel 2.6.37, KDE 4.6, Qt 4.7.1-r1, Python 2.6.6-r1). I'm compiling from source using the Gentoo regular portage ebuild, and the following is the error;
Code:
*
* Running gui
*

        Compiling form /tmp/portage/app-text/calibre-0.7.44/work/calibre/src/calibre/gui2/shortcuts.ui
/tmp/portage/app-text/calibre-0.7.44/temp/environment: line 1418:  6411 Segmentation fault
      "$(PYTHON)" "${setup_file}" "${DISTUTILS_GLOBAL_OPTIONS[@]}" install --root="${D}" --no-compile "$@"
I think that the problem is that in updating other parts of my system, I've probably got something installed in a way that's causing the segmentation fault. Here are the Calibre ebuild component dependencies for my system, and the currently installed versions;
Code:
dev-libs/icu-4.6
dev-libs/libusb-1.0.8
dev-python/setuptools-0.6.14
dev-python/beautifulsoup-3.0.8.1
dev-python/dbus-python-0.83.2
x11-misc/xdg-utils-1.1.0_rc1-r1
gnome-base/librsvg-2.32.1
dev-libs/chmlib-0.40-r1
dev-python/dnspython-1.9.2
dev-python/imaging-1.1.7
media-libs/libwmf-0.2.8.4-r3
app-text/podofo-0.8.4
app-text/poppler-0.14.5
dev-python/cssutils-0.9.7
dev-python/lxml-2.3
dev-python/mechanize-0.2.4
dev-python/python-dateutil-1.5
dev-python/PyQt4-4.8.3
media-gfx/imagemagick-6.6.5.6
dev-python/reportlab-2.5
In addition to reinstalling Python, I've reinstalled all of the above components, however I still get the same error when trying to compile Calibre. Any other suggestions on what I can try to fix this, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks..

Thank you Kovid!!

Re-emerging;
Code:
dev-python/sip-4.12.1
dev-python/PyQt4-4.8.3
kde-base/pykde4-4.6.0
Fixed this problem for me. I also apologize because I seem to remember this being the solution for a similar compile issue that I had earlier. I just forgot to try rebuilding sip and pykde4 this time, before posting.

Thanks again.
