Yep. The issue isn't with installation-time dependencies, it's
build-time dependencies -- that's why I was confused.
There was a change to how build-time dependencies are handled,
specifically intended to fix a different issue with Paste,
PasteScript, and PasteDeploy's dependencies on each other.
My guess is that if you put eggs for those three packages in your
third-party directory, the problem (or at least the problem with
those three) would go away.
However, I'll see if there's a way for "child" easy_install runs (as
used for build-time dependencies) to inherit the parent's settings
for things like --find-links, --index-url, and --allow-hosts (but not
options that would interfere with the child install's options.
