Now, while this clearly needs python3.5, this second error also makes me realize that I am unable to follow the wording in the pyqtdeploy tutorial about setting up the folder that my $SYSROOT env variable points to. For example, what goes in there? Is that documented anywhere?

pyqtdeploy does not yet support Qt v5.8 or Python v3.6.
