I have a related remark with respect to PyQt4's pyqt_config.py.
The _pkg_config dictionary for PyQt4 gets initialized as:
_pkg_config = {
    'pyqt_mod_dir':       '/home/packer/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages',
    'pyqt_sip_dir':       '/home/packer/usr/share/sip',

This is slightly inconvenient for add-on packages because the modules have
been installed in /home/packer/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/PyQt4 and
the sip files are in /home/packer/usr/share/sip/PyQt4 (PyQwt needs special
cases when built for PyQt3 or PyQt4).

>From feedback it seems that SIP-4.4 (contrary to SIP-4.3 and earlier) does not
parse files with \r\n (Windows) line separators.  Is this a bug or a feature?
