pyqtdeploy-sysroot triggers a python bug on some python installs. It is a simple workaround in pyqtdeploy/sysroot/

from importlib import util as importlib_util

...should be used instead of...

Import importlib; importlib.util

I used pyenv to install python-3.7.8 then installed pyqtdeploy using pip. The bug did not occur when using a host python-3.7.8 built myself from source.
