I don't want to be the bad guy here, but explaining how to build a RPM is
hardly doable via email.

There is a lot of good info at www.rpm.org, even if some of it is a bit
outdated. But be ready to work a fair amount to get that working.

And remember that RPMs will not even work on some distros.

Also, some shortcuts to create rpms:

checkinstall (lost the URL, google it)

http://joerghaeger.de/webCDwriter/download/tar2rpm.sh (have not even tried

If the user has PyQt installed by other means (for example for Red
Hat/Fedora/Centos users, kde-redhat.sf.net), distutils can create fairly
simple RPMs (they have no dependencies listed, so they are technically
broken, though).
