I'm not going to apply the patch (but I've added the problem to the TODO
list).  The "correct" solution is to get sip to generate code that tests
whether bool is implemented. In other words, the test should be made
when the generated code is compiled - not when sip is compiled.

I've added the -i flag (is this all that's needed?)
