[PyQt] Crosscomping sip with a sip.cfg file

I'm updating the recipe in OpenEmbedded to the recent release. I am
running into an issue where the python parts are ending up in the build
sysroot, not the image. So the packaging doesn't pick up the python
parts of sip.

I create a sip config with required paths, the line I see in the
generated sip.cfg is:

sip_module_dir =

which is where I want to the the sip module end up, but after config,
compile etc I see this in sipconfig.py:


Which is not where I need the module installed.

Any ideas? This has worked in the past.
