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.

Please help me resolve the same

    This is the support tracker for PyPI, not for any project hosted on it. Please contact the TurboFlot maintainers for support of that project.
