You can use minitage.recipe:scripts recipe to install them.
This is an another implementation to install eggs.
The recipe has some interresting features you won't have with
zc.recipe.egg (like on the fly patching/generating isolated eggs with
those patches, installing from arbitrary urls, and better dependency
See http://pypi.python.org/pypi/minitage.recipe for documentation

If you have bugs with it, poke me, i ll be plased to help fix them.
