You may just perform the steps 3, 5, 6 in that order. However, you will be 
missing the PyQt4 API file, which is only installed, if QScintilla2 is 
already installed.

As a workaround you may perform a python configure.py in PyQt4, which will 
create the file PyQt4.api. Thereafter you may copy it manually into the API 
installation directory, which is somewhere in the Qt4 directories (over here 
on openSUSE it is "/usr/share/qt4/qsci/api/python/").
