Comment(by chuck@…):

 Ran into this when updating PySide from 1.0.7 to 1.0.8 for Homebrew.
 Traced the problem down to a file in PySide, PySideConfig.cmake, which
 does not contain a default value for `SHIBOKEN_PYTHON_SUFFIX` which causes
 the file to include its self in an infinite loop. This occurs when the
 CMake file for pyside-tools calls `FIND_PACKAGE(PySide)`.

 Bug opened with a patch to fix the template used to generate


 Alternatively, you could probably side-step this issue by passing
 `-DSHIBOKEN_PYTHON_SUFFIX='-python<desired version number>'` to cmake when
 configuring pyside-tools.
