My package is publically available here
<http://pypi.python.org/pypi/PyTAPS/>, but that's probably not all that
helpful in practice, since it has a fair number of C dependencies. For
simplicity, I made an incredibly simple package (all it installs is a
single header file) that reproduces the problem for me, which you can
get via: 

pip install -f
