2to3 has not been run on the code that gives you errors. The traceback
seems incomplete, and gives no indication of where in the install you
get the errors. From the stdout it seems like it just installs the
code without using 2to3.

The only idea I have at this moment i sto make sure that the build
directories are empty.
