Apparently easy_install-3.2 puts stuff in a different location on OS X
then on ubuntu. See the following output

md:site-packages maarten$ easy_install-3.2

I guess this has become more of a setuptools/easy_install question
then an IPython one.

Ps. Note that from an enduser point of view my problem has been solved
a long time ago. But I guess ipython would become more user friendly
if either the ipython3 stuff also ends up in your path on OS X or if
there is a small warning/help message printed after the setup tools
have been run which sais where the executables are located if they are
not on your path.
