[PyQt] Compiling SIP v5 vs v4

I was looking at the installation instructions of SIP v5.

SIP v4 had the option of specifying configuration files,
and using qmake for the creation of makefiles.
This was really easy to use for example the mingw compiler
delivered with Qt or use a cross compiler.

That support seems to be removed from SIP v5 ?

Is the main idea now that one should rely on the
support of distutils/setuptools for such scenarios ?
(support, cough, cough)

Or are there other options entertained ?

Best regards,
