sip compiles and installs just fine. The included file 'sip.spec' works ok
for me too, and creates working rpm files, which is really nice. I noticed
that PyQt does have a PyQt.spec too, and I tried to use it, as I prefer to
have rpm:s if possible.

It compiles ok now (but takes a while on my older P2-333) using the
'PyQt.spec' file, but the installation part fails. It assumes Python is
installed in /usr, but the older BeOpen-Python-2.0 rpm:s are installed in
/usr/local. Thus the rpm-making fails in the end at:

+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-compress
+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-strip
+ /usr/lib/rpm/brp-strip-comment-note

Apparently the build process will install the files in the proper places
(for me), but the PyQt.spec uses the hardcoded paths. I'll change the
prefix in PyQt.spec and see what it does. Apparently the %files section in
PyQt.spec should be dynamically generated based on the Python path.

Anyway, thanks for the fixes!
