     That's about typical.  "easy_install" isn't "easy".  It has some
built-in assumptions about where various files are stored, and if
the installation doesn't match them, installs fail with obscure
error messages.

     "egg" files are really just "zip" files.  It's sometimes
necessary to unpack them, and run "python setup.py".
