Thanks Kovid!

hluk added a build script[1] (133 lines total = 97 lines in configure.py[2]
+ 36 lines in build.sh[3]) that supports both PyQt4 and PyQt5, now the only
problem on my system is that I hit a segmentation fault whenever I
build/run the test with PyQt5. But that should probably be a separate

Anyway, its short and it builds just fine[4], so maybe it can be a short
example for others.
