AS AN ALTERNATIVE, you can just copy the entire "django" directory to Python's
site-packages directory, which is located wherever your Python installation

/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages (Unix, Python 2.4)
- /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages (Unix, Python 2.3)
C:\\PYTHON\site-packages (Windows)

-bypasses "setuptools" entirely.
