Installing obfsproxy

Today I tried to install obfsproxy according to
on an ubuntu server.

The page suggest that installing via "pip install obfsproxy" is a no-brainer. But the first install failed because of of missing gcc, what I resolved with apt-get install build-essentials. The second install because of missing phython-dev package. I suggest to update obfsproxy-instructions.html.en that having build-essentials and python-dev is a requirement.

we added python-dev to the apt-get install package list. Should we also add build-essentials? I'm asking because I've never heard anyone else complaining.

Thanks. If it is required to have build-essentials to install obfsproxy I would add it. I don't think that we can expect that it is available on any server.

OK. Pushed changes to website that add the build-essential package to the installation list.
