lang/python/ should not make py-setuptools an installation dependency


I've been poking around lang/python/*.mk, and I noticed that

> DEPENDS+=     ${PYPKGPREFIX}-setuptools>=0.6c9:../../devel/py-setuptools

I believe that this should be BUILD_DEPENDS rather than DEPENDS.
Setuptools is a development library typically included from the package's script used during package-build; as such, it should not be
required on a production system.

Is there any reason that setuptools is needed at/after install-time?
