That message comes from bdist_mpkg. I fixed it on my machine, and a fix was
also committed to the svn repo. However, I think there was no new bdist_mpkg
release on pypi (I did get a "why don't you just use eggs instead?") and the
1.5.1 binaries were not made on my machine. So the problem returned.

Yes, there is no binary for Python 3 at the moment. But unless you have a
specific need/desire to use 3.1/3.2 I'd suggest staying with 2.6 or 2.7 from
python.org for now. With Activestate you have to compile yourself or use
their (paid?) pypm repo.
