Thanks Diez!
when I run:
sudo easy_install http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/C/Cheetah/Cheetah-2.4.0.tar.gz#md5=873f5440676355512f176fc4ac01011e

it works. By I need also put Cheetah to install_requires in setup.py
like this:

setup(
    name="django-yuidoc",
    version="0.1",
    zip_safe=False,
    packages=find_packages(),
    install_requires=["setuptools",
                      "Pygments",
                      "SimpleJSON",
                      "Cheetah",
                      ],
)

and install this package with buildout but I get "error: Couldn't find
a setup script [...]" and workaround with pass the url doesn't work
with here (An internal error occured due to a bug in either
zc.buildout or in a recipe being used)
