Well distribute is right here: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/distribute/0.7.3

But nothing should be explicitly depending on it (particularly in
favor of setuptools).  Looking at pydicom there's nothing remarkable
about it that it should make such a requirement, so if they do they're
wrong and its developers should fix that.
