Installing iPython

Under macqiime,
sudo easy_install pip
sudo pip install ipython[all]
git clone --recursive https://github.com/ipython/ipython.git
cd ipython
python setupegg.py develop
git pull
iptest

During iptest it calls xorg so you need to install this if not already.
To install ipython I ran macqiime and installed it under that shell.
sudo easy_install readline
sudo easy_install ipython
sudo easy_install pyreadline
sudo easy_install pyzmq
sudo easy_install tornado

Seems to work
