Description of problem:
Although we all agreed at PyCon2010 that we weren't going to touch distutils so that we didn't accidentally break packages that depend on it, distutils was changed for Python-3.2 and broke at least setuptools.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. fedpkg build python-setuptools
Failure in the unittests for the python3-setuptools subpackage
package builds without errors
Upstream bug report. http://bugs.python.org/issue11200 MvL pointed out that this could potentially happen but no one reverted it so we need to come up with the fix for setuptools. It could be as simple as adding abiflags to the config_vars dict in finalize_options but I'm not sure. Antoine says that the code is copy-pasted from distutils and has fallen out of sync. I don't have the historical background with the code to know whether just adding abiflags to the config_vars dict is the solution or if we need to do more than that.
