Searching for setuptools
Reading http://www.python.org/pypi/setuptools/
Reading http://peak.telecommunity.com/DevCenter/setuptools
Reading http://www.python.org/pypi/setuptools/UNKNOWN
Best match: setuptools 0.6c1
Processing setuptools-0.6c1-py2.4.egg
setuptools 0.6c1 is already the active version in easy-install.pth
Installing easy_install script to /usr/local/python/bin
Installing easy_install-2.4 script to /usr/local/python/bin

Using /usr/local/python/lib/python2.4/site-packages/setuptools-0.6c1-py2.4.egg
