It seems that even current versions of setuptools to fail ugly when os.link cannot be performed, and this seems to be something more and more common, especially due to the virtualisation.
Hard links are not supported in many network mounts and virtual environments. In my case I am using Parallels to share my home directory which also contains the python modules which I am developing, allowing me to run the same code on OS X, Ubuntu and Windows.
It seems that doing python setup.py sdist fails with the (in)famous error:
hard linking README.txt -> foo-0.1
error: Operation not permitted
