Trivial Distutils problem

With the very basic Distutils script below, I get the following error:
$ python setup.py build
error: package directory 'TableIO' does not exist
Why does it think I want to install a package? It's just one module to go
in the root package.
I'm on windows (above output pasted from a cygwin window, but it does the
same in a DOS shell).
#! /usr/bin/env python
# Distutils setup.py for TableIO
from distutils.core import setup, Extension
setup(name = "TableIO",
version = "1.4",
description = "A module for reading ASCII tables into NumPy arrays (and "
author = "Michael A. Miller",
author_email = "miller5 at uiuc.edu",
py_modules = ["TableIO.py"]
# should really be Extension("TableIO._tableio"... ?, but Tableio.py
# does import _tableio rather than import TableIO._tableio
#ext_modules = [Extension("_tableio", ["_tableio.c",])]
