[PyQt] PyQt 4.4.2 incorrect configuration

I'll start off by thanking everyone whose worked on this, I find PyQt to
be a very nice UI toolkit to work with.

I just ran into a problem with how it is configured after being
installed. Specifically, with version 4.4.2, it installed most
Qt-specific functionality into:
~  C:\Python25\PyQt4\*

Which is nice, as it keeps that separated in its own directory. However,
when I go to actually compile an extension, it fails to find these files.

I managed to track this down into "sipconfig.py" and
"PyQt4\pyqtconfig.py". Which uses paths like:
~  C:\Python25\sip

rather than
~  C:\Python25\PyQt4\bin\sip

I also wanted to verify something. It seems that installing PyQt
installs all of the libraries, etc, but it does not install the Qt
include files. So I cannot actually build an extension. Is that true? Is
there a way to install "just enough" of Qt so that I don't end up with 2
copies of all of the dlls/.libs on disk?

Again, thanks for the great toolkit. And I'm hoping it is a small thing
to get the installed paths to be correct without having to manually edit
the config.py files.

reply-to-all, I would appreciate it.)
