Installation problems with setuptools 3.6

Issue #86 resolved
Konstantinos Efstathiou
created an issue

I am trying to install pyobjc-core (2.5.1) using pip (pip install -U pyobjc-core) or easy_install in a virtualenv.

Installation fails with the error

  File "/Users/cefstat/Config/venv/catalog/build/pyobjc-core/", line 271, in get_exclusions

    for fn in install_lib._install_lib.get_outputs(self):

AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute '_install_lib'

I am running Python 3.4.1 on Mavericks 10.9.3, pip 1.5.6 and setuptools 3.6.

I am inclined to blame the latter since I see that install_lib in setuptools 3.6 no longer inherits from _install_lib (as in older setuptools versions). It now inherits from orig.install_lib.
