I got the same impression, actually, concerning enthought packages. It 
may be useful to have a wiki page on this ?

Right now, in topical software, it says " Python Enthought Edition: for 
Windows users, this is a very useful download, in a single package, of a 
number of different tools for scientific computing (including many 
listed in this page). This saves Windows users the hassles of manually 
building all of these packages, some of which can be fairly difficult to 
get to work. A similar project is underway for Mac OSX users." which 
implies to me that it is just a binary thing for windows...

On the other hand, if I had follow the chaco link before, it would have 
avoided some of my misconceptions...
