Sorry, I should have checked that first.  Thanks.  I'll dig into this 
tomorrow but the latest error is:


C:\projects\pyqt5-tools\src\sip-4.19.13.dev1807141053\mk_distinfo.py "" 
Traceback (most recent call last):
line 108, in <module>
     fn_f = open(fn, 'rb')
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 

There is a sip.lib there but, as it says, no sip.pyi.  Just in case you 
are familiar with this offhand as well.
