As a potential user, I downloaded the sources from that link a few months ago
http://code.enthought.com/downloads/ets/enthought-1.1.0.tar.gz
which beautifully failed to compile on my machine, and didn't have time to 
investigate. Seems that the link is broken somehow: the tar.gz is < 1MB, when 
the advertised size is ~20MB.
I just downloaded the Python2.3 version instead, hoping that it'd work. We'll 
see.
