[IPython-dev] Trouble installing latest IPython 2.0 on Mac

I’m using a Mac with Anaconda installed. I was able to pip install the master branch of IPython 2 before but I wanted to update it (so I could get widgets). It looks like it dies while trying to build the readline extension module with regard to Darwin. I already have readline 6.2 installed (from conda). When I try to pip install readline, I get the same error:

Command /Users/alessandro.gagliardi/anaconda/bin/python -c "import setuptools, tokenize;__file__='/private/var/folders/s2/y7672sbn1p77xsk1zlh4zpss4brwrw/T/pip_build_alessandro.gagliardi/readline/setup.py';exec(compile(getattr(tokenize, 'open', open)(__file__).read().replace('\r\n', '\n'), __file__, 'exec'))" install --record /var/folders/s2/y7672sbn1p77xsk1zlh4zpss4brwrw/T/pip-yvVpC0-record/install-record.txt --single-version-externally-managed --compile failed with error code 1 in /private/var/folders/s2/y7672sbn1p77xsk1zlh4zpss4brwrw/T/pip_build_alessandro.gagliardi/readline

Storing debug log for failure in /Users/alessandro.gagliardi/.pip/pip.log

I’ve attached the pip.log file in case that helps.
