Comment (by f.baart@…):

 Not sure if this helps, but I noticed that there is some cmake magic [1]
 going on that generates a wrapper script if the pyuic4 script is not
 present. The script was named pyuic4-2.7 instead of pyuic4.
 Another thing I noticed was that in another pyuic4 wrapper script [2] the
 executable python is called explicitly, which for me was referring to
 python35, without PyQt4 installed.

 To get qgis building I had made 2 changes:
 * I had to port select python27 and then set it back afterwards.
 * I also created a symbolic link from pyuic4 to pyuic4-2.7 (in
 /opt/local/bin), but I did not test it without this link.
