[PyQt] Incorrect Makefile using .prl files from Qt 5.12.4

Hah, yes I'm well aware of what deprecated means. Wasn't aware this was 
deprecated however (as stated before, I'm only indirectly using 
sipconfig, via ROS' python_qt_binding). I guess I shouldn't be surprised 
that ROS uses deprecated functionality :p

Also Eli, thank you for the references on how this change happened. I 
guess the conclusion is: "don't use sipconfig". For now I patched 
python_qt_binding, to substitute this variable with its value. Not an 
ideal solution, but replacing sipconfig with something else is not 
something I look forward to.

Thank you Phil and Eli for the (very) quick responses.

In case anyone reads this for the python_qt_binding patch:
