In my little experience with Macs, I always add this option to the sip's 
configure.py invokation:

LFLAGS_PLUGIN="-bundle -flat_namespace -undefined suppress"

I think this is explained in README.Fink, in SIP. Without these options, 
I always get the "bus error" with anything compiled through the sip 
build engine.
