New submission from Marcus Smith <qwcode at gmail.com>:

the user and home installation schemes are broke in pypy 1.9 due it's custom 
"pypy" installation scheme.

user scheme: http://docs.python.org/dev/distutils/install.html#alternate-

home scheme: http://docs.python.org/dev/distutils/install.html#alternate-

there's a wake of issues/workarounds in pip and virtualenv related to the "pypy" 

I created a diff that shows the difference for distutils.command.install between 
py2.7 and pypy1.9, and discuss options.
