Hi all,

I am new to the mailinglist. I am trying the get the combination of Qt 5.8.0, / PyQt 5.7.1 / sip 4.19 / Python3.5 to work on my macOS 10.12.2 (Sierra). I've run into several problems which I've explained in detail here<http://apple.stackexchange.com/q/270302/201104> at Ask Different.

Some of the problems I've managed to solve, but there is one that keeps preventing me to properly install PyQt 5.7.1.

Once I run the command:

python3.5 configure.py --destdir /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.5/lib/python3.5/site-packages --qmake ~/Qt5.8.0/5.8/clang_64/bin/qmake

And try to apple `make` afterwards, the make process crashes with the following error:

~/Downloads/PyQt5_gpl-5.7.1/QtCore/sipQtCoreQt.cpp:1093:62: error: no member named 'WindowCancelButtonHint' in namespace 'Qt'; did you mean
    {sipName_WindowCancelButtonHint, static_cast<int>( ::Qt::WindowCancelButtonHint), 419},

../../../Qt5.8.0/5.8/clang_64/lib/QtCore.framework/Headers/qnamespace.h:300:9: note: 'WindowCloseButtonHint' declared here
        WindowCloseButtonHint = 0x08000000,
~/Downloads/PyQt5_gpl-5.7.1/QtCore/sipQtCoreQt.cpp:1106:58: error: no member named 'WindowOkButtonHint' in namespace 'Qt'
    {sipName_WindowOkButtonHint, static_cast<int>( ::Qt::WindowOkButtonHint), 419},
2 errors generated.
make[1]: *** [sipQtCoreQt.o] Error 1
make: *** [sub-QtCore-make_first-ordered] Error 2

I was advised there to contact this mailing list since one of the Ask Different users mentioned, in relation to my problem:

"This is a known problem that will persist until Riverbank upgrades their software".

I am hoping anyone on this list might confirm this diagnose and, if so, might have any idea on when to expect these updates?

Thnx in advance!

All best,
