Is there a /usr/local/src/bitten/trunk/bitten.egg-info/PKG-INFO file, with
a 'Version:' header in it? If not, then the error message is correct, and
you should go to /usr/local/src/bitten/trunk and run "setup.py egg_info" to
rebuild the project's egg-info.

No; it just looks like a straightforward error to me. Older versions of
pkg_resources (like the 0.5 versions) sometimes masked this error, though,
as it used to be an AttributeError instead of a ValueError, and it could
thus get suppressed in certain situations.
