The setuptools bootstrap/build does not use pip, but the checks fail without pip installed.

svn up python-setuptools && cd python-setuptools/trunk/
# remove python-pip python2-pip from makedepends
extra-x86_64-build -- -- --nocheck
# success

Moving python{,2}-pip from makedepends to checkdepends reduces unnecessary packages required when rebuilding setuptools, and as a side effect makes it easier for e.g. archlinux32 to bootstrap the repository by simply skipping testsuites.

Thanks abaumann for discovering this.
