Today’s post is a summary of how to install PySAL on Windows for OSGeo4W Python.
The most important resource was https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/wiki/ExternalPythonPackages
In the OSGeo4W Shell run:
C:\Users\anita_000\Desktop>curl http://python-distribute.org/distribute_setup.py | python
Update: Note that python-distribute.org has gone down since I posted this. See http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/python/python/1158958 for more info.

When pip is ready, install PySAL:
C:\Users\anita_000\Desktop>pip install pysal
