[PyQt] --static configure of sip tries to install sip.pyd not sip.lib

It looks like the SIP configure.py is getting an extension wrong when 
--static is specified.  It writes 'sip.pyd' to 'installed.txt' rather 
than 'sip.lib'.  This results in the install setp failing because the 
.pyd is not present.


FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 


         mod_ext = '.pyd' if sys.platform == 'win32' else '.so'

should be:

         if sys.platform == 'win32':
             mod_ext = '.lib' if opts.static else '.pyd'
             mod_ext = '.so'

I observed this directly in 4.19.12 but at least the symptom was present 
in 4.19.11.

Then again, maybe something else entirely is the issue since I really 
don't know my way around these builds.
