It(qmake)  indeed get installed, but  is not in your PATH.
$ echo  $PATH
to see whether it contains   /usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.8.2/bin, if not
add it into your PATH.

I still suggest installing pyqt via dpkg or aptitude. It's not the
latest, but can save you much time.
One problem is it doesn't support python3, you can only  use PyQt4 in python2.
# aptitude install  python-qt4  pyqt4-dev-tools

BTW, Debian testing and unstable ships latest PyQt4  and it supports python3.
