------- Additional Comments From jchang at biopython.org  2003-11-07 12:28 -------
The setup.py script was trying to save the EUtils dtd data files in the standard locations (under 
Python site-packages), etc.  However, this fails if the user does not have the required privileges, 
even if they specify an alternate installation path.  Thus, I have updated setup.py to be more 
sensitive to those changes by modifying a hack from the mx.TextTools installation code.
