At this stage, you're *done*. Everything is installed, you don't have
to do anything anymore. I am sorry if the following is obvious, but
that's the only explanation I can make: there are two ways to install
open source softwares - from sources, or from binary installers. By
using the superpack, you are using the later - using setup.py implied
the former. So what you end up doing is to try building the software
from the binary - which does not make sense.

It may not look like it at this point, but you are making things much
more complicate than they really are :) After the super pack
executions, you have run the installers successfully, so everything is
installed, without any further step to follow.
