It doesn't seem to work for me:-(

First, and least important, there's a typo in the instructions. You say 
to do the following after installation:
	cd /Developer/qt/pyqt-mac-source/PyQt-mac-gpl-3.1.3
	sudo make install
That first directory should be PyQt-mac-gpl-3.13

When I had done all that I tried Eric 3, but it quit after bouncing a 
few times. Then I tried it from the command line, with:
	/Applications/Eric\ 3.app/Contents/MacOS/Eric\ 3
but it still complained about not being able to find libqt-mt.3.dylib.

Inspection of /Developer/qt/lib indeed did not reveal this file: 
libqt-mt.a and libqt-mt.la are available, but the dylib is missing.
