[Distutils] setuptools requires bash, not sh.

From the top of an egg file:
if [[ `basename $0` = "setuptools-0.6c5-py2.4.egg" ]]
That syntax is a bashism, not /bin/sh.
-bash-2.05b$ sh ./setuptools-0.6c5-py2.4.egg --prefix=~
./setuptools-0.6c5-py2.4.egg: [[: not found
./setuptools-0.6c5-py2.4.egg is not the correct name for this egg
Please rename it back to setuptools-0.6c5-py2.4.egg and try again.
This is broken for Solaris (which doesn't have bash, by default), on
recent Ubuntu (which has /bin/dash as /bin/sh, not bash) and any
other Unix that doesn't have bash as /bin/sh.
