Compile the gui modules like this:

     pyuic4 --from-imports -o $OUTDIR/output.py input.ui

This will add the correct import statement to the end of the generated 
gui module. You should then compile the resources module like this:

     pyrcc4 -o $OUTDIR/resources_rc.py resources.qrc

For this to work, the resources module **MUST** be written to the same 
directory as the gui modules. Also, the resources file **MUST** be named 
"resources_rc.py" (although, if you really need to, you can modify it 
slightly using the pyuic4 --resource-suffix option).
