PyQt4 fails install on CentOs


I'm trying to install PyQt4 from source on CentOS 5.4 with no success. It fails during make.

Here's my setup:
uname -a -> Linux 3d25 2.6.18-164.el5 #1 SMP Thu Sep 3 03:28:30 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
rpm -q python -> python-2.4.3-27.el5
rpm -q qt4 -> qt4-4.2.1-1 (i386), qt4-4.2.1-1 (x86_64)

This is what i have done so far:

tar -xzvf sip-4.9.3.tar.gz
cd sip-4.9.3.tar
make install
No errors so far

tar-xzvf PyQt-x11-gpl-4.6.2.tar.gz
cd PyQt-x11-gpl-4.6.2
python --confirm-license --qmake=/usr/lib64/qt4/bin/qmake
Error snippets

Checking to see if the dbus support module should be built...
The Python dbus module doesn't seem to be installed.

make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/software/PyQt-x11-gpl-4.6.2/qpy'
make: *** [all] Error 2
Could it be incompatibilities with this old version of Python? I'm trying to set this up for a kickstart installation.

Any help appreciated

Do you have dbus-python, dbus-qt and dbus-qt-devel installed?
