Can you copy that error message again? BTW, you don't need sudo to run make –  Braiam Nov 7 '13 at 4:01
@Braiam I get different error this time, please find updated error. –  user1426913 Nov 7 '13 at 4:33
You seriously need to use a clean build directory. Remove everything you have, unpack the files and try again. –  Braiam Nov 7 '13 at 4:50
@Braiam - I deleted all the files, re-installed, but get the same error as above. using python version 2.7.3 –  user1426913 Nov 7 '13 at 5:22
