Actually, I understand that Qt 4 doesn't use $QTDIR anymore, so I 
imagine that sooner or later the PyQt build process will have to do 

It doesn't have to be too complicated, either. A few command line 
options to set the include path, the lib path and the bin path 
manually, without changing anything else, should suffice in order to 
please The People. A lot of distributions try to install Qt cleanly 
within their own directory structure, and forcing them to set a bunch 
of symbolic links in some directory in order to emulate Qt's default 
one-dir-for-all structure might not make them exceedingly happy with 
us, I don't know. Just a thought, anyway.
