I just installed distribute 0.6.26 on the new alpha 3 of CPython 3.3 but the easy_install script was not created in the bin folder.

Please find attached the full installation log.

    Currently available Distribute releases do not support CPython 3.3 due to importlib-related changes in CPython 3.3. You can try Distribute trunk:

    $ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/tarek/distribute
    $ cd distribute
    $ python3.3 setup.py install

    (Support for CPython 3.3 was restored by a2685f3af854. CPython 3.3 versions from 2012-04-14 to 2012-04-22, which contained _frozen_importlib._FileFinder and _frozen_importlib._SourceFileLoader, are not supported.)

    It is possible that Distribute will again stop working after some future changes in CPython 3.3.
