The PyQt5 upstream does not use standard Python tools for building the 
package.  As shipped by upstream, a source build of PyQt5:

python3 configure.py
sudo make install

does not install any egg information.  Only the upstream wheels provide 
anything.  They provide a PyQt5-5.10.dist-info directory which appears to 
perform a similar function.

This is probably not feasible in Debian as we split PyQt5 into a number of 
sub-packages to minimize the dependencies that get pulled in for various 
applications.  I'm not sure how to manage the egg-info for such a case.
