Not into the python interpreter, but I think PyQt is linked statically
to Qt in that case, i.e. the full Qt lib is included in the .so's for
PyQt. I think this is needed when you have a statically linked Qt, but I
might be wrong on that (not a library guru).

If qmake is in the path or QTDIR is set it does pick up that version.


If your life was a horse, you'd have to shoot it.
