> I'm not sure what you mean? The site riverbankcomputing.com said "Before you can build PyQt4 you must have already built & installed SIP". I see the binary packages listed at the bottom of the page, but I thought I needed SIP installed as well. I guess the website is confusing. Are you saying all I need is the binary package for my version of Windows"
Indeed - you can either build sip and PyQt yourself, or use the binary
From http://www.riverbankcomputing.com/software/pyqt/download5 :
"These binary installers for Windows contain everything needed for
PyQt5 development except for Python itself."

On OS X the easiest way would probably be to use Homebrew or
MacPorts but I haven't tried that yet.
