[Neuroimaging] Mac OSX 10.6.8 problem

Hi folks,

I am brand new to Python, and I am having difficulties installing Dipy onto
my Mac (OSX 10.6.8).  I already had X-code, and I just downloaded and set
up Anaconda3-2.4.1-MacOSX-x86_64.sh.  I tried "pipping" all of the
dependencies as per the Dipy website, and it said that this packages were
already 'satisfied'.

However, when I then 'pip install dipy', I get errors such as:

  SystemError: Cannot locate working compiler

  Failed building wheel for dipy
Failed to build dipy

... AND...

Command "/Applications/anaconda3/bin/python3 -c "import setuptools,
'open', open)(__file__).read().replace('\r\n', '\n'), __file__, 'exec'))"
install --record
--single-version-externally-managed --compile" failed with error code 1 in

As I'm not familiar with the Python environment, I'm not quite sure where
to start troubleshooting.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
