these kind of questions are better asked on pypy-dev.
Anyway, at the moment you need a working python installation in order to
run the pypy chain. I have to admit that I didn't understand your
question, but you should read the pypy documentation on as
it will probably answer all of your questions. Alternativly, you might
want to join the #pypy channel on freenode
