If you are installing Python 2.7.10 and a previous version of 2.7 was already installed, the installation processs can fail when compileall.py finds badly-written third-party modules in the site-packages or dist-packages directories.

The installation process should either ignore errors from compileall.py, or compileall.py should be told to ignore the site-packages and dist-packages directories.
