I'm updating my Qt stack, but ran into the private sip problem again with sip 5.  I'm building all PyQt stuff from scratch because I want to link to an installed Qt and want control over the target system (macOS).

First, I found that the simple pip install does NOT install private.  So I'm building it as I normally do.  But the build system has changed for sip - instead on configure.py, it now has a setup.py, and there are no options for setting the private PyQt.sip module.

How do I build a private sip 5?
