In December, I needed -mimpure-text for Solaris. This is my PR #28671. It
is a Solaris only option, but I don't know if it is gcc specific.

Under Darwin, py-qt3-sip uses -shared which is wrong.

The README.Fink suggests:
  LFLAGS_PLUGIN="-bundle -flat_namespace -undefined suppress"
and that works for me to build and install.

Next my errors with py-qt3-base on Darwin are:

BSD_INSTALL_GAME_DATA=/usr/bin/install\ -c\ -o\ root\ -g\ wheel\ -m\ 444
/usr/pkg/bin/python2.4 -b /usr/pkg/bin -d
/usr/pkg/lib/python2.4/site-packages -v /usr/pkg/share/sip2.4)
Error: Unable to build mkfeatures utility.

Any thoughts or comments on any of the above?

I will commit the -mimpure-text fix just for Solaris to close that PR if
nobody objects. (Noone replied about this since my postings in December as
far as I recall.)
