Ah right, this message is intended to be shown when grokproject is
done trying to bootstrap the new project; then grokproject itself will
continue running buildout.  But in fact of course this is also shown
when someone does a manual bootstrap; then this is the last message
eggbasket shows before stopping.

I now changed that to only say "Failed to install required eggs with
the tar ball."

And I made an accompanying change in grokproject: at the end of the
bootstrap.py of the generated project we now give the user a hint that
he can run bin/buildout (or bin\buildout.exe on windows).
