I get the following error. Do I need something installed?

$ ./virt-install --version
Traceback (most recent call last):

The INSTALL file says the following, but it guess this is not a good
way to do as ubuntu update may overwrite such files. Instead, I may be
better install it to /opt/local?

To install the software into /usr/local (usually), you can do:

    python setup.py install
