[Distutils] easy_install is using umask during installation, it shouldn't

I have umask 077 on root, and always after installing a python package
with easy_install I get permission errors, because packages are being
installed to their directories, but users can't access them because of
the permissions generated by the root's umask.

The installed python packages should have 755/644 mods.
