Both, the latest stable PyQt 4.10 as well as PyQt-win-gpl-snapshot-4.10.1-66f4c96140c6.zip
generate Makefiles with errors on my Windows machine.

Instead of

    @if not exist   D:\_cpp_projects_\Python\Python-3.3.0\Lib\site-packages\PyQt4 mkdir       D:\_cpp_projects_\Python\Python-3.3.0\Lib\site-packages\PyQt4

I get

    @if not exist   # legacy D:\_cpp_projects_\Python\Python-3.3.0\Lib\site-packages\PyQt4 mkdir          # legacy D:\_cpp_projects_\Python\Python-3.3.0\Lib\site-packages\PyQt4

in the 'install' target. Then, Microsoft nmake complains.

Manually removing all "# legacy" fixed it. But I couldn't figure out which of the
build tools put it in there.

Best Regards,
Mathias Born
