Hi, trying to install pyqt4 so I am installing sip first.

I have  a canopy distribution of python with which I wish to use pyqt4.

trying to run python configure.py yields:

Shahar: sip-4.15.3 $ python configure.py 
This is SIP 4.15.3 for Python 2.7.3 on darwin.
The SIP code generator will be installed in
The sip module will be installed in
The sip.h header file will be installed in
The default directory to install .sip files in is
The platform/compiler configuration is macx-g++.
Creating siplib/sip.h...
Creating siplib/siplib.c...
Creating siplib/siplib.sbf...
Creating sipconfig.py...
Creating top level Makefile...
Creating sip code generator Makefile...
Creating sip module Makefile...
Error: SIP requires Python to be built as a framework

hence make fails as-well.

any suggestions?
