[Qgis-developer] a little python confusion and problem

I am a little confused about Python support in Qgis.  In building  
Qgis 0.8.1, SIP wasn't found for some reason, yet msexport still  
built.  So, it seems that there is a basic Python dependency (this  
one I remember from 0.8.0) for MapServer export, and a separate  
dependency on Python + SIP and PyQt for ? -- direct Python bindings  
to Qgis itself?

If that's the case, it should be made more clear in the install docs,  
so I don't rack my brains too much over why SIP wasn't found.

I can't figure out why SIP wasn't found.  The cmake --debug-output  
option doesn't tell me any more than without it.  I don't see a log  
file with anything useful.
