Jumping through hoops!

Hi. New to calibre.
Fedora Core 13, 64 bit.
I was thinking of trying to build Calibre for this platform, but so far it's
done a good job of beating me.
I got so far...
Installed bzr
Cryptic message when I tried to download, re launchpad ID?
Eventually managed to swap keys with launchpad so it seems to know me.

Nothing on 'my home page' on launchpad to say what is this 'id' that is required with the command
$bzr launchpad-login ????
Which 'ID' is wanted here please?

Also, seems ipython is used. Is that required, or python 2.6 sufficient?

TIA DaveP

Why not simply install the binary package?

You don't need a launchpad id to check out code using

bzr merge

And the list of requirements is listed on the linux download page

I had hoped to feed back a 64bit install.

yum install (nearly) the full list on http://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux
What is the package name for Python Imaging Library?
Rest installed OK.
$python setup.py install now returns

Package poppler was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `poppler.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'poppler' found
Package poppler-qt4 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `poppler-qt4.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'poppler-qt4' found

Thanks. From where should it be removed?
And what of poppler itself? Is that needed?

In Fedora, PKG_CONFIG_PATH isn't used. Is the build reliant on it?
