[PyQt] PowerPC/ppc64 with PyQt-mac-gpl

I've been trying to build PyQt on a PowerPC G5, using a version of  
Python built with ppc64 and PPC support. I'm hoping that I can use it  
in 64-bit mode, since that's why I was going with Qt over wx in the  
first place.

I get errors telling me that qtdirs.out is not produced; when I look  
inside qtdirs.app I see that it's built only for i386. I saw brief  
mention of this on the mailing list archives from several months ago:


and the replies seem to indicate that it's a bug with recent versions  
of Qt. Thus, I'm downloading an old version and hoping for the best.

Has anyone successfully used PyQt on PPC lately, let alone PPC64? I  
notice all of the configure files for SIP and PyQt only mention ppc,  
i386, and x86_64, even though the compilers should be capable of  
dealing with ppc64 (as is Qt itself).
