We don't support easy_install yet. The correct approach
is "python setup.py install"; see the INSTALL.txt inside the

Even if we did change our distro to support easy_install,
a proper installation ideallly requires both FreeType 6
and PIL compiled to use it, and easy_install can't
control the various compilers to that degree. So we
prefer people to download the tgz and follow the instructions.
