You need to check "which python2.5", because that's what:
>sh setuptools-0.6c11-py2.5.egg --prefix=~
will try to run, not "python".
And if python2.5 isn't the one in /home/myname/bin, then you'd get:

However, if you have the right python2.5 on your path, you don't need
to even use the --prefix option, since the /home/myname/lib will be
that Python's *default* install location.
