> What's wrong with using configure.py, though?

I’m trying to follow the documentation (https://www.riverbankcomputing.com/static/Docs/PyQt5/installation.html):

> The recommended method of building PyQt5 from source is to unpack the sdist and use SIP’s sip-install program

and (https://www.riverbankcomputing.com/static/Docs/PyQt5/building_with_configure.html):

> Prior to the release of SIP v5 the only way to build PyQt5 (and related projects) was based on a configure.py script. This method is now deprecated

and the advice in the Phil’s email (https://www.riverbankcomputing.com/pipermail/pyqt/2019-November/042314.html):

> I'd suggest using sip-install, as the docs state
