you don't really want to let setuptools install numpy either, because it uses easy_install
The real solution is: https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0518/ , which lets you give a list of packages that pip should install before running setup.py
unfortunately no-one has actually implemented this in pip yet, though it should be relatively straightforward and the pip developers have already agreed on the design, in case anyone wants to give it a go :-)
