When I want to run build.py on the OS X platform. It will tells me:

> (mozr)MikeLings-MacBook-Pro:mozregression mikeling$ python gui/build.py run
> Executing `/Users/mikeling/mozregression/mozr/bin/python mozregui/main.py`
> Traceback (most recent call last):
>   File "mozregui/main.py", line 7, in <module>
>     from PyQt4.QtGui import QApplication, QMainWindow, QMessageBox
> ImportError: No module named PyQt4.QtGui
> ERROR: Command '('/Users/mikeling/mozregression/mozr/bin/python', 'mozregui/main.py')' returned non-zero exit status 1

So, after discuss with :parkouss on irc, we found it's because mac uses PYTHONPATH to find the packages the mozregression need. But in the build.py, we just override it(https://github.com/mozilla/mozregression/blob/master/gui/build.py#L63). Therefore, we need to update the PYTHONPATH variable with '.' in build.py, and not override it.

Due to I haven't meet this problem when running under the Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows7, I can't tell if it's a universally problem. So, I decide to treat it as a specially problem on Mac platform for now :).

Thanks for this!

Well the test with env["PYTHONPATH"] could leave to a KeyError (in case the env var is not defined) so it should be fixed.

I also noted some minor comments on the PR.

Yup, thanks for the update - just one last thing to change (this is failing when PYTHONPATH is not defined for me), and after that I'll be happy to merge this in. :)
All good now, thanks!

Merged in https://github.com/mozilla/mozregression/commit/eff6817cc35f76cb46fc7810a9e714eed439275d.
