I'm pretty sure I installed all the dependency packages for calibre all with => version numbers. Anyway :
SIP version : 4.8.1-snapshot-20090611
Maybe it was stupid of me to install a snapshot instead of a regular version release since I'm not a developer ? Actually I would have installed a stable version normally but the setuptools package script easy_install pointed to a mirror with the snapshot instead of a stable release of SIP so it might not be my own stupidity or at least not entirely my own stupidity if that is actually the problem here.
