This does eliminate the error trying to link the plugin. The --arch
arguments force universal binaries with support for both 32- and
64-bit apps, which is fine, however I do note during the configure of
PyQt the following appears:

BTW: running the full PyQt make with an epic number of g++ compiles on
a macbook pro? Runs the CPU temps up to full-fan and makes it quite
uncomfortable to have on one's lap!
