Hello. I have a PyQt4 app that I want to bundle on Mac OSX with cxfreeze.
But first I tried to bundle the sample in cxfreeze/samples/PyQt4/setup.py.
Sadly, it immediately ends with:
copying QtCore.framework/Versions/4/QtCore ->
error: QtCore.framework/Versions/4/QtCore: No such file or directory
Searching I find this discussed in the mailing list in 2010 and 2011, and
as an issue here:
The issue status is "resolved" -- but only (if I read correctly) if I
install Qt via Macports. I did not do this, I installed by downloading the
latest Qt4.8.5 installer from qt-project.org, which puts everything in
Is it the case that cxfreeze does not support Qt and PyQt on Mac OSX when
Qt is installed normally?
Or is there some option I can put into my setup.py to fix this? I tried
setting these options to build_exe,
but with no effect.

At the moment, yes, it's only been made to work with PyQt installed from
Macports, because that's what the people who wrote it and tested it were
using. If you can make it work with PyQt installed on a Mac by other means,
I imagine Anthony would be happy to merge the necessary changes.
