Hi Phil,

One more question related to this, do you have any guidelines for which
binaries to include in order to make the PyQt distribution not depend on a
prior installation of Qt?

The way I've done it in the past was to copy all binaries from one of the
distributions available on your site into a newly compiled PyQt, but it
seems a little of a hack and I'd rather do it the proper way, if one exists.
