This doesn't print anything out. Should it? (I'm not trying to be obtuse
here, I don't follow the latest Python developments closely.)

This is what I get if I use the get_paths() function, which should
apparently show all the installation paths:

Python 2.7.3 (default, Jan  2 2013, 13:56:14) 
[GCC 4.7.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sysconfig
>>> sysconfig.get_paths()
{'platinclude': '/usr/local/include/python2.7', 'platstdlib': 
'/usr/lib/python2.7', 'platlib': '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages', 
'purelib': '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages', 'stdlib': 
'/usr/lib/python2.7', 'scripts': '/usr/local/bin', 'include': 
'/usr/local/include/python2.7', 'data': '/usr/local'}

I'm guessing that this is wrong, at least for the "include" entry, so it
may be time to report a bug against the python2.7 package in Debian.

It seems that a workaround for Pablo would be to install Python from source,
then install sip and PyQt using that Python installation.

Unless someone else can suggest an alternative solution...
