Indeed, upstream commit 86298f2109d215ad6b26d3462af7b685d52d0dd7 drops
the fallback on distutils, and only setuptools is supported now. This
makes my patch series introducing python3-setuptools even more relevant
then. I would like to see a review from Yegor on this series first, as
he has lots of background in the Python integration in Buildroot.
