I'm trying to build PyQt 5.9 dev on OS X, but it doesn't get past the first test to determine my Qt setup.  With verbose I get:

Determining the details of your Qt installation...
/Users/Shared/unix/qt5.9/5.9/clang_64/bin/qmake -o cfgtest_QtCore.mk cfgtest_QtCore.pro
WARNING: Failure to find: config-tests/cfgtest_QtCore.cpp
make -f cfgtest_QtCore.mk
make: *** No rule to make target `config-tests/cfgtest_QtCore.cpp', needed by `cfgtest_QtCore.o'.  Stop.
Error: Failed to determine the detail of your Qt installation. Try again using
the --verbose flag to see more detail about the problem.

I see that config-tests/cfgtest_QtCore.cpp does not exist. I tried creating the folder config-tests first, but still no luck (thinking maybe it had trouble creating the folder).

Using Python 3.6, Qt 5.9.0, PyQt 5.9.dev1706101816, OS X Clang 8.0.0

I have not tried PyQt 5.8 with Qt 5.8, I had trouble building QtWebkit that I need, but I notice that the config-tests folder is new to PyQt 5.9.
