    System versions of Python are installed to /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions. Versions installed from are installed to /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions. If you just want to change the system default, see here.

    PyQT should come with build instructions. Check the download.

    I think you will be better off using the pre-compiled "minimal" version available here:
    PyQtX - Browse Files at

    Get the file -
    Download PyQtX from

    And also read this:
    PyQtX / Wiki / Home
    (not sure if you need to also get basic Qt libs for Mac - sorry)
