First you need to define a 'spec' file for SIP that describes all the 
compilers and flags you need to use. See the 'specs' directory in the SIP 
source package.

Second you need to hack at PyQt's configure.py to remove all the dynamic tests 
it does (ie. compiling and running test programs to determine the 
configuration) and replace them with hard-coded values.
