Installing kupfer launcher in slackware?

I'm trying to install kupfer, i installed all the dependencies but for some reason i get this error:

bash-4.2# ./waf configure
Setting top to : /home/miguel/Desktop/kupfer-v208
Setting out to : /home/miguel/Desktop/kupfer-v208/build
Checking for program python : /usr/bin/python
Checking for python version : (2, 7, 3, 'final', 0)
Checking for program msgfmt : /usr/bin/msgfmt
Checking for program perl : /usr/bin/perl
Checking for 'intltool-merge' : /usr/bin/intltool-merge
Checking for program xml2po : /usr/bin/xml2po
Installing python modules into: /usr/local/share/kupfer
Checking for program rst2man : not found
Optional, allows: Generate and install man page
Python module gio : ok
Python module gtk : ok
Python module xdg : not found
Could not find the python module 'xdg'

I have installed pyxdg, so i guess the module is being looked for in the wrong place?, any ideas on how to solve this?

can it be you installed pyxdg before you upgraded python to 2.7.3 (I see you're using -current)? maybe you have to rebuild it and reinstall it.
It's like this for every other python module/program/library because if built over the old python they're in /usr/lib$LIBDIRSUFFIX/python2.6 and not /usr/lib$LIBDIRSUFFIX/python2.7.

Try to install pyxdg again from the Slackbuild:

sbopkg -i pyxdg
