[PyQt] Configuring

I seems that a vanilla Qt-5.12.0/PyQt-5.11.3 build is broken on vanilla ubuntu, because qt can’t find the OpenGL headers/libs? Is it possible to build PyQt5 without the OpenGL requirement?

In a qt build configured like so (notice —no-opengl to get configure checks to pass on headless ubuntu)...

./configure -opensource -confirm-license -release -nomake examples -nomake tests -prefix $SYSROOT -skip qtactiveqt -skip qtcanvas3d -skip qtgamepad -skip qtremoteobjects -skip qtscript -skip qtspeech -skip qtvirtualkeyboard -skip qtwayland -skip qtwebview -no-opengl

….on a PyQt5-5.11.3 configured like so:

python configure.py --enable QtCore --enable QtGui --enable QtWidgets --concatenate -b $SYSROOT/bin --qmake `which qmake` --no-designer-plugin --no-qml-plugin --no-python-dbus --verbose --confirm-license

I get the following build error
