installed and verified working:
 - Mac OS X Version 10.7.5 (Lion)
 - Xcode Version 4.6.1
 - Python 3.3.1 (python-3.3.1-macosx10.6.dmg)
 - Qt5.0.2 (qt-mac-opensource-5.0.2-clang-offline.dmg)
 - SIP v4.14.6 (sip-4.14.6.tar.gz)
 - PyQt v4.10 (PyQt-mac-gpl-4.10.tar.gz) 

This is more of an FYI since I successfully installed v4.10 using configure.py and everything is working (after trying the brand new v4.10.1)!

With /Users/jar/Qt5.0.2/5.0.2/clang_64/bin in my PATH I issue the command: 

python3 configure-ng.py --sip /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.3/bin/sip

after accepting the license terms, and after checking to see if several modules should be built... it errors out on the module QtDBus:

Checking to see if the QtDBus module should be built...
Error: /Users/jar/Qt5.0.2/5.0.2/clang_64/bin/qmake failed to create a makefile
from cfgtest_QtDBus.pro.

I wonder is this a missing Qt5 environment variable or path thing? An interesting note is that w/ v4.10 (configure.py) I do not need to specify the location of the SIP on the command line however v4.10.1 (configure-ng.py) complains right away if I don't.
