What problem exactly do you have ?

Since 1.3.0, the release process for numpy uses virtualenv internally
to build the installers, so at least python setupegg.py install works
as far as setuptools is concerned.

That's the recommended way anyway. I am trying to make sure we work
under as many cases as possible for packaging, but the underlying
python architecture for packaging is so fragile and flawed that things
will break from time to time.
