I've never tried to install Twisted on OS X except by using setup.py to do
a single-user installation.  However, I'm pretty sure that if you provide
more details about how exactly the installation process fails you'll be
more likely to get someone else who does have a clue to help you out.

Be detailed in what steps you took and what the consequences were.  Where
there are errors, include them verbatim.
