The makefile is just a front-end to the tests. I think you can just copy
the storm directory (the one containing __init__.py, not the top-level
storm-0.9 dir) to your site-packages directory.

egg files are zip files packaged for use with easy_install:
In many cases easy_install gives one-step installation of Python
packages, including downloading from the CheeseShop. In the case of
storm it didn't work for me (using the --dry-run option though). YMMV.
