And I propose the attached patch, which clarifies the error messages 
(especially the message displayed when the first "make" compilation fails) and 
disable "-q" under Windows (where it does not work anyway).

Sample session with the patch:

Determining the layout of your Qt installation...
Error: Make sure you have a working Qt v4 qmake on your PATH

[E:\pyqt\PyQt-win-gpl-4-snapshot-20070710]set PATH=e:\Qt\4.3.0\bin\;%PATH%

Determining the layout of your Qt installation...
Error: Failed to create release\qtdirs.exe (using platform: win32-msvc.net).
Make sure your compiler is installed correctly and you have a working "nmake"
on your PATH

"C:\Programmi\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Common7\Tools\vsvars32.bat"
Setting environment for using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 tools.
(If you have another version of Visual Studio or Visual C++ installed and wish
to use its tools from the command line, run vcvars32.bat for that version.)

Determining the layout of your Qt installation...
This is the GPL version of PyQt 4-snapshot-20070710 (licensed under the GNU
General Public License) for Python 2.4.2 on win32.
