"'cc' failed with exit status 1" error when install python library

Like many others, I'm having issues installing a python library (downloaded as a tar, then extracted).

clang: note: this will be a hard error (cannot be downgraded to a warning) in the future
error: command 'cc' failed with exit status 1


As suggested elsewhere, I tried entering in terminal "ARCHFLAGS=-Wno-error=unused-command-line-argument-hard-error-in-future sudo python setup.py install", but no success.

Is there a way around this issue that seems to have appeared with xcode 5.1?

Answer

Installing with (inside of the program folder you pulled down)

sudo -E python setup.py install

did the job!
