PIL isn't safe for use with easy_install. I hope that Naoki's post about
the x86_64 libraries has helped as this came up recently.
For virtualenv's the best choice, however, is to use the Pillow fork of
PIL which runs fine with easy_install or pip. Oh, and try to avoid
"activate" unless you're very confident of what you're doing.
