Bug Description

This should be self-explanatory:

$ virtualenv -p python2.4 /tmp/sandbox --no-site-packages
$ /tmp/sandbox/bin/easy_install zope.testrunner
Searching for zope.testrunner

(It works if I use python2.5 instead of 2.4.)

Making the '__init__.py' in that faux-egg directory non-empty seems to make the package installable.
