The reason why gnumed installation is so crazy is all the dependencies.
Looking at the distutils docs, it doesn't do anything for dependencies, and 
it's designed
for library modules (like wxPython) not end-user apps like GNUMed.

For Gentoo, (and BSD) all we need is a tarball with an script that 
everything into place and runs py_compile. IMHO this is easier than trying to 
distutils to our purposes.
