I'm running paramiko-1.7.6 with python 2.7.3 on my Ubunto Precise box.
I'm reasonably sure all I did was "pip install paramiko".
On the other hand, it may have built it from source during the install.
Generally, I just let pip do it's magic and don't worry about the
details. If you're in an environment where you don't have the compiler
tool chain, you may be more constrained.

Fabric uses ssh to make connections, and it is capable of copying files.
For all intents and purposes, I'd say that means it is capable of
"performing scp / sftp" (both of which are just front-ends to the same
basic ssh protocol.
But, keep in mind that fabric depends on paramiko. If you can't get
paramiko installed, you probably can't get fabric either.
