[TIP] tox vs buildout

Hi All,

I do all my development with buildout, but I'd like to start using Tox.
The first package I'm trying to move in Testfixtures, the work I've done 
so far is on a branch here:


Currently, when I run, I get:

$ bin/tox
____________________________________________________________ [tox sdist] 
[TOX] ***creating sdist package
[TOX] /Users/chris/LocalGIT/testfixtures$ /usr/local/bin/python2.6 
setup.py sdist --formats=zip --dist-dir .tox/dist >.tox/log/0.log
[TOX] ERROR: invocation failed, logfile: 
[TOX] ERROR: /Users/chris/LocalGIT/testfixtures$ 
/usr/local/bin/python2.6 setup.py sdist --formats=zip --dist-dir 
.tox/dist >.tox/log/0.log
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "setup.py", line 5, in <module>
     from setuptools import setup, find_packages
ImportError: No module named setuptools

[TOX] ERROR: FAIL could not package project

How can I get Tox to use /Users/chris/LocalGIT/testfixtures/bin/docpy 
instead of /usr/local/bin/python2.6 to do the packaging?
