I didn't have this problem when I did this with Twisted 8.0.0.

I am working on a scheme to make our buildbot [1] do this  
automatically, and once I've done I'll post to this list.

Meanwhile, note that what your setup.py did was untar the Twisted  
tarball into a temp dir, cd into it, and run "setup.py -q bdist_egg -- 

Maybe you should try that by hand and see what happens.
