I came up with this workaround:
from setuptools.command.install import install
args = [sys.executable, "-m", "easy_install"] + setup_requires
And in the setup() call, ensure you include:
This will easy_install the setup_requires in a separate process which is
unpolluted by the distributions already downloaded during setup.
