configure and compile on OSX works just like on other OSs.
One problem with SIP on Leopard is that it wants to install in the
Python framework. This isn't a good idea with the system Python. I
use this configuration on Leopard:
python configure.py -n -d /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages \
-b /usr/local/bin -e /usr/local/include -v /usr/local/share/sip \
This gets it all in more appropriate places.
For the python.org Python package, on Tiger or Leopard, you just need
to configure the site-packages and SDK, and let the rest default to
folders in the python framework.
Once you get SIP installed, PyQt configure just needs to know the site-
packages, and on Leopard the bin path (to find SIP).
