I've got this figured out. This is more of a Qt issue, but since I started the 
thread here, I'll post my solution here. It may prove useful to someone else.

1) Install PostgreSQL into a directory without any spaces. e.g., C:\PostgreSQL

2) configure Qt:
configure.exe -qt-sql-psql -I C:/PostgreSQL/include -L C:/PostgreSQL/lib -l pq

3) Compile/install SIP and PyQt4.

4) Add the pg bin path to the system path:

5) Run your python app.

Works for me!
