Hmm, I want the .dtd files to be in the same place as the .py files.  
Can you try making a slight change to the setup.py file and see if it 
does that?

Please replace the line:
     if sys.platform == 'win32':
     if 0 and sys.platform == 'win32':

Yep, that's what I want.

Not sure how to check, because I haven't used EUtils.  However, this is 
how Brad (who has used EUtils) had set up the installer for Unix.  
Andrew, can you confirm?
