Bugzilla has a Himalaya of bad karma about not being easy to install.
And developers who don't *really* care about that.

At my company, that's one of the reason we're not using it. Not the only 
reason, there's also the fact it had from start the image of being ugly 
looking and complex (and based on perl I have to say, but if all the 
rest had been right ...) , but when the person in charge of having a go 
at all the tools tried to install it, failed, spent more time trying, 
failed again, then ended the report with "I couldn't install it", when 
he had had success installing most of the other tools in minutes, it was 
the final nail in the coffin.
