Welcome to the world of stupid Python-based installers.  I still don't
know why people use "setup.py" to distribute Python stuff, but that's
probably just me getting old and grumpy I guess.

I'd recommend using the Ports the next time :-)

The feedparser you installed manually seems to be available as
textproc/py-feedparser in the Ports collection.
