Hello Phil,

> Run configure.py with the -w flag to see what it's trying to do.

Thanks again.
OK, configure.py couldn't locate mingw32's version of make. Now I
stumbled upon the next problem: I didn't have a recent version of sip.
I downloaded the code, configured it (with configure.py -p win32-g++),
ran make, however I get error messages while running make install:

D:\sip-4.4.1>mingw32-make install
makefile:29: warning: overriding commands for target `.c.o'
makefile:26: warning: ignoring old commands for target `.c.o'
mingw32-make[1]: Entering directory `D:/sip-4.4.1/sipgen'
syntax error: got EOF, expecting then
mingw32-make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
mingw32-make[1]: Leaving directory `D:/sip-4.4.1/sipgen'
mingw32-make: *** [install] Error 2

I also ran:
D:\sip-4.4.1>mingw32-make -d install

And got as last part:

  No need to remake target `sip.exe'.
 Finished prerequisites of target file `install'.
Must remake target `install'.
