[Distutils] Buildout bootstrap script now works when other setuptools versions are installed.

I just fixed a bug in the zc.buildout bootstrap script:


That caused boostrapping to fail when an old setuptools was installed  
in the Python path (e.g. system Python).  Now, the system Python is  
used if it's available and ez_setup  is used only if necessary.  Not  
only does this avoid failures when older versions of setuptools is  
installed, but also makes bootstrapping a little faster when  
setuptools is installed locally.

People including bootstrap.py in their projects should update to the  
new version.
