No, PyQt4's configure works different. We had to do this in the "early"
stages of PyQt4, but nowadays it gets the information about Qt paths
from a compiled program and those are always the same, no matter where
the qmake that belongs to the installation is put. It works here for me
using /usr/bin/qmake-qt4.
