I must have gotten confused between your comment that "If you get the 
code via git, it is not a release." versus "releases can be found at 
github" To a newbie like me, these are the same statement. So I kept 
going back to http://www.zeromq.org/bindings:python and on that page I 
see instructions for using git to download source code, and based on 
what you told me that meant that I was downloading a development release.

Separately from what? All I know is that things weren't compiling, then 
I tried to use pip to install cpython but that didn't seem to fix 
things, so I tried easy_install, and now things work.

Right now things are too confused for me know how anything got installed 
on my machine. I will revisit this installation issue at some point when 
I start to build out my Amazon Machine Images where I think I'll be 
using ZeroMQ a bit.

Thanks for your help.
