	I've just downloaded Distutils 0.1.3 and tried to compile it on my
SGI IRIX 6.5 machine.  I am using python 1.5.1.

	Here is what I got:

proteus:/p12/src/Distutils-0.1.3) python setup.py install
running install
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "setup.py", line 13, in ?
    setup (name = "Distutils",
  File "distutils/core.py", line 102, in setup
    raise SystemExit, "error: %s: %s" % (exc.filename, exc.strerror)
AttributeError: filename

	What is wrong and how do I fix this?

	By the way, I just signed up to be on this list but have not received
the confirmation yet so please reply back to me personally to be sure that I
am getting your responses.
