it does the trick if I instead type  "setup.py easy_install ."  the  
[easy_install] section doesnt seem to get picked up if the explicit  
command doesnt match.

as a side note, in trying to make "easy_install" look the same as  
"install" by placing "verbose=1" inside the config file, that also  
raises an error (its getting '1' instead of 1 as the value):

File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/lib/python2.4/ 
easy_install.py", line 827, in run_setup
     v = 'v' * self.verbose - 1
TypeError: can't multiply sequence by non-int
