Hi.. I ran into a pretty basic problem with the py25-pyqt4 (4.4.3)
port. The error blurb describes it all. Sadly, I don't know how
macports builds work, but somehow the config missed the
${prefix}/Library/Frameworks directory for the -F flag. I just changed
up by hand the Makefile in
[build-dir]/work/PyQt-mac-gpl-4.4.3/designer to include the right flag
and the install went fine from there.

Unfortunately I'm getting the bus error problem now when I try to
"from PyQt4 import Qt"
