[PyQt] pyqtdeploy and sip errors...

Many thanks Phil, 

There was a mistake in my "cut 'n paste" - the $SYSROOT/qmake was in the wrong place. But deleting the sip directory and untaring it again worked a treat. The "make install" put sip in the correct directory and I don't get the can't find sip error on building with pyqtdeploy. I'll have to remember that....but not sure why it was happening. I did install sip under python3 previously as I seem to recall it being required on one point. So maybe some files are not being overwritten? 

Now I only have the " /usr/bin/ld cannot find -lintl" error. Any thoughts? gettext and libc6-dev are both installed. Is there anything else that should be installed where this library can be found? Or can I build without it somehow? The app does not need to be internationalised.
