[Distutils] Distribute install problem on Snow Leopard

I installed Distribute on a Snow Leopard box using the default Python that
comes with OS X. I used the installation method recommended in the docs, the
distribute_setup.py script. Now easy_install fails no matter what package I
try to install (it does not get around to looking for the name of the
requested package):

$ easy_install blablabla
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/easy_install-2.6", line 10, in <module>
    load_entry_point('setuptools==0.6c9', 'console_scripts',
line 281, in load_entry_point
    return get_distribution(dist).load_entry_point(group, name)
line 2197, in load_entry_point
    raise ImportError("Entry point %r not found" % ((group,name),))
ImportError: Entry point ('console_scripts', 'easy_install') not found

Did I forget something, or is this a bug? Any suggestions on how to fix it?
