Well, of course it won't be.

in ipmaker.py:

    # we need the directory where IPython itself is installed
    import IPython
    IPython_dir = os.path.dirname(IPython.__file__)
    del IPython

is going to be an immediate problem, because the files won't really be
there (they are in the egg). The dir is used to exec the scripts as
specified in ipythonrc...

Also the windows post install script is a problem, the files it refers
to are not visible either.
