I don't know why, but it _seems_ the -v flag is necessary, in 
I tried your new slackbuilds. I set $PREFIX to another location.
I built sip, then pyqt4 (which required to set properly $PYTHONPATH), 
but "from PyQt4 import QtGui" did not work (whereas import PyQt4 did).
Then, I have built everything again, this time with the -v flag, and 
everything is working.

As I said, I am not a python expert. Maybe this flag is not necessary, 
for a person who knows what to do.
