After installing setuptools and attempting to use easy_install to
install a library, I get this error:

I can create symbolic links in /usr/local to just /usr, (which
shouldnt' be necessary, but if I do that, I get an equally catastrophic,
even more difficult to explain error as easy_install does its path

I'm using python 2.6 (which seemed to be what came on my install)

Should I switch versions? What gives?
