[PyQt] Concatenate single-file: need /bigobj

while compiling PyQt for Qt 4.6 in concatanate mode on Windows, a hard
limit of the obj file format is hit by QtGui (number of sections).
Visual Studio itself suggests compilation with the command line option
/bigobj, which fixes it, but it is available only on msvc2005 and newer.
If you look at the documentation of MSVC, the only reason why NOT to use
/bigobj is to produce obj files that can be linked with a pre-2005
linker. So I think it would be safe to always enable it for PyQt
compilation when using a newer-enough Visual Studio version.
What is the correct place to do this modification?
