Because it can't be copied (currently), and the -a flag in your -maxd
means "--always-copy" -- that is, copy the egg, even if it's on sys.path.

Yes, just build eggs for your local packages and place them somewhere
accessible to --find-links. Alternatively, ensure that all needed
packages are on sys.path, and use -mxd instead of -maxd. (i.e., allow
setuptools to *not* copy things that are already available on sys.path.)
