fuchsia:trunk charlieclark$ port info py26-pip
py26-pip @0.6 (python, www)

Description:          pip is a replacement for easy_install. It uses  
mostly the same techniques for finding packages, so packages that were
                       made easy_installable should be pip-installable as

py26-distribute @0.6.8 (python, devel)

Description:          Distribute is a fork of the Setuptools project. It  
is intended to replace Setuptools as the standard method for
