Thanks, but how do I do this? And why is the error message about the
installation TARGET? And if the Macports Python is my default, why does
it not install this thing at this default location? Where do I configure
where to install such that the setup script runs through?

The original error seems to be

 [Errno 2] No such file or directory:

I understand it searches for some file at that location, so what does
that have to do with the target of the current setup?

Sorry, I'm really a Python newb.
