im having much problems :( jeje
doing the "make" to the pyqt with MinGW, the console say that:

* mingw32-make[1]: *** [QtGui.pyd] Error 255
* mingw32-make[1]: Leaving directory `C:/PyQt-20090403/QtGui'
* mingw32-make: *** [all] Error 2

in an old mail of this list one say:
I ran into this issue while compiling PyQt 4.5.4 against Qt 4.5.1 on
windows xp using mingw and cmd.exe.

I was able to work around it by changing line 37 of QtGui\Makefile from
        $(LINK) $(LFLAGS) -o $(TARGET) $(OFILES) $(LIBS)
        $(LINK) $(LFLAGS) -o $(TARGET) @ofiles $(LIBS)
and copying the contents of $(OFILES) into a new file called "ofiles".

One strange thing was that this was only necessary on one XP windows
box - another did not seem to hit input character limit.

what means "and copying the contents of $(OFILES) into a new file
called "ofiles"."??
what i need to do?
i modified the makefile of qtgui, i need to do something else?
