[PyQt] OS X PyQt configure fails to detect Qt modules with SIP dev snapshot

When checking for Qt modules, they all fail.  With verbose on:

g++ -arch i386 -arch x86_64 -DQT_NO_DEBUG -DQT_GUI_LIB -I. -I/mkspecs/macx-g++ -I/Library/Frameworks/QtGui.framework/Headers -I/usr/include -pipe -arch i386 -arch x86_64 -isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.6.sdk -O2 -w cfgtest_QtGui.cpp -o cfgtest_QtGui -F/Library/Frameworks -L/Library/Frameworks -headerpad_max_install_names -arch i386 -arch x86_64 -Wl,-syslibroot,/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.6.sdk " /Library/Frameworks" -framework QtGui -framework QtCore
i686-apple-darwin10-g++-4.2.1:  /Library/Frameworks: No such file or directory
i686-apple-darwin10-g++-4.2.1:  /Library/Frameworks: No such file or directory
lipo: can't figure out the architecture type of: /var/folders/sR/sRPc625DExO5QU-J7yy7vE+++TQ/-Tmp-//ccwIuEu6.out

Note the " /Library/Frameworks" in there, right before the framework flags.  This seems to be coming from the dev snapshot of SIP:

siputils.py, line 2317 (in parse_build_macros(), ignore comments section):

                if adding:
                    orig_rhs = raw.get(lhs)
                    if orig_rhs is not None:
                        rhs = orig_rhs + " " + rhs

if I comment that out, the Qt tests succeed.  It didn't seem to hurt compilation at all.
