[PyQt] Android & the pyqtdeploy tool: the provided demo relies on undocumented libraries/headers?

The missing steps in the docs would be which versions to download (it 
would be nice to have a series of wget commands to download  the exact 
versions required in the docs). I didn't see any versioning requirements 
in the docs, but I did see the image 
<http://pyqt.sourceforge.net/Docs/pyqtdeploy/_images/pyqt-demo.png> of 
versions here: http://pyqt.sourceforge.net/Docs/pyqtdeploy/demo.html

Are these versions in the image the ones I should use?

In any case, I notice I'm using openssl-1.0.2p.tar.gz -- not sure if 
1.0.2p that is the same as 1.0.2 but it is failing to build trying to 
find the standard library (stdlib). Perhaps because the 
sysroot-android-32/include directory is empty? Shouldn't there be *.h 
files in there? I tried removing the sysroot and running again but it 
still failed.

PyQt5 comes with a tool designed to build APK's, called pyqtdeploy, but it is not clear if it is functional yet. The provided demo is missing the steps to get from demo to APK.

However I have taken a stab at it, and I found issues compiling both OpenSSL & SIP. There are missing libraries & headers.  I have detailed my steps here in a public forum so that others who have the same issue can hopefully share what they find:
