I am able to build sip4-tqt. Through that I can answer my previous question: sip-tqt is a full sip package and not an overlay or tqt bindings package for an existing installed sip.

I was confused because I thought we were building (T)Qt3 bindings like we did with poppler in tdegraphics. Slackware includes sip as a stock package and I did not realize sip4-tqt is a replacement package.

Now we have at least two full packages that replace those provided by the distro. The other being libart_lgpl. I don't mind one way or another, but perhaps we could clarify that for packagers. :)
