Thank you for this info.
Now I can install the cvs version.
But there is still a problem that is not 2.3 related: if I use the setup.py 
with the --prefix option I get this error:
Installing easy_install.py script to tmp2.4/bin
error: tmp2.4/bin/easy_install.py: No such file or directory

It works using ez_setup.py and the -d option.

Is it safe to use the -d to build packages (deb) of setuptools?
That is what I'm doing now...

Thank you again.
