I am pretty close to building Python bindings for QtWinMigrate using 
these sip files <https://github.com/glennra/PyQtWinMigrate>, Qt 4.8.5, 
Python 2.7.3 and nmake on Windows.

I have my own little configure.py to use sip's build system to create a 
Makefile, sipAPI*.h and sip*.cpp files based on the QtWinMigrate.sip.
The two needed moc files I created manually like: moc -o 
moc_qwinwidget.h qwinwidget.h
Please see the complete Makefile here: http://pastebin.com/WG1WRTGw

However the Makefile somehow misses some includes, which I added 
manually (line 8, headers for Qt and QtWinMigrate).
It also seems to expect a QtWinMigrate.lib, which I am not sure how to 
create and setup properly.

When I build the qtwinmigrate project using:
cd qtwinmigrate
configure -library
it will build a .dll, .exp and .lib in the \lib directory, but named 
like QtSolutions_MFCMigrationFramework-head.lib.

Is that the one I need? How to reference it correctly in the Makefile?
Btw, do I have to reference the MFC libraries/headers somehow?

Thanks for your help,
