Yes, there were a few messages dealing with the opposite problem to the
one you have: looking for /usr/X11R6/lib64/ when it doesn't exist. It would
appear that something has assumed that your system has a 64-bit architecture,
but that you don't have the necessary files in the place it expects.

Do you know how your Qt installation was configured: which options were
passed to the configure script? In particular, it's useful to know whether
a -platform option was specified. This affects how qmake builds programs,
and therefore how PyQt gets its information about the Qt configuration.

More information about Qt configuration can be found in this thread on
the qt-interest mailing list:
