Joshua Boverhof previously reported this in 

If you specify a package in setup_requires it will be built in the 
current directory. But even if it is in install_requires as well, it 
won't be installed because the requirement is already satisfied at setup 
time by the package in the build directory.

Is there a workaround for this?
