I tried to install this library with easy_install but it gave me this error:

The package setup script has attempted to modify files on your system
that are not within the EasyInstall build area, and has been aborted.

This package cannot be safely installed by EasyInstall, and may not
support alternate installation locations even if you run its setup
script by hand. Please inform the package's author and the EasyInstall
maintainers to find out if a fix or workaround is available.

Thanks. Closing as a duplicate of #1073. We need to merge #1075.

In the meantime, you can apply the patch there yourself and install or set the MPLCONFIGDIR environmental variable temporarily to point to somewhere that's writable.
