Hm.  I'm not able to reproduce this, with either install or 
easy_install, on setuptools 0.6 or 0.7, on Python 2.4 or 2.5, on 
Windows or Linux.  Have you tried it *without* a virtualenv, i.e.:

    /path/to/the/real/python easy_install -md somedir fez.atcsv

?

(By the way, it appears that one problem you may be encountering 
anyway is that several of the packages you're trying to install do 
not support Python version 2.4, and have many syntax errors during 
the build process.)

It's the other way around, actually.  Distribute is a fork of setuptools.
