sudo easy_install stdeb  # brought in stdeb 0.3

$ cd myappdir # where my setup.py is located

$# following http://github.com/astraw/stdeb/  quickstart 1

$ python -c "import stdeb; execfile('setup.py')" sdist_dsc && \
 >   cd `find deb_dist -mindepth 1 -maxdepth 1 -type d` && \

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "setup.py", line 41, in <module>
NameError: name '__file__' is not defined


The error is coming from the setup.py line:

import imp
import sys
import os
import glob

from distutils.core import setup, Command
from distutils.command.install import install

if os.name == 'nt':
    import py2exe



I do not get this error when I run setup.py normally for other commands 
like 'sdist'.

How can I fix this?
