Well, for "pure python" packages, there is no 'building' involved.  Just 
copying the files to a specific location.  However things that use distutils, 
then yeah, I can understand build requiring the python dist-utils module, or 
just python since its included (do we have something for python like perl's 
perl(Foo::bar) stuff?)
