just installed the latest PyQt4 release (4.11.3) on MacOSX and could not
impot PyQt4 afterwards in python. Turns out it decided to place itself into
however that directory is not in sys.path after starting Python.

sip on the other hand (installed just before, version is 4.16.6) put itself
into /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages and that is part of sys.path.

I guess this isn't intended? Where does PyQt gather the default
installation directory from?


PS: Passing -d /Library/Python/2.7/site-packages worked fine of course.
