Yes, that seems to install properly on my OS X 10.5.8 machine.


I promised Andi Vajda over at PyLucene that I'd see if distutils2 is up
to the job of replacing setuptools for the PyLucene JCC build.  The
basic requirement is that it knows how to build shared libraries,
something which setuptools knows how to do and distutils doesn't.
