Description

The old distribute_setup.py tool seems to cause issues in some newer environments. In particular, some users would get the error NameError: name 'sys_platform' is not defined.

In addition, the ez_setup.py bootstrap script will bail if an older setuptools is already installed.

    I just added a section to the wiki for how to install using the tools in the Anaconda python stack. This allows users to circumvent any setuptools related problems.
