[PyQt] Can't build sip as universal binary on Leopard

This message on Apple's mailing list sheds some insight:


Essentially, the '-mmacosx-version-min=10.4' flag needs to be passed in 
somewhere. This is necessary because the current OS is now 10.5.

I'm not sure how to patch the toplevel configure.py to obtain the 
correct argument parsing, however. Running the  script with the invocation

python configure.py CFLAGS+='-isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk 

builds a single-platform (i386) binary, not a universal binary.

Any hints?
