handling setuptools.egg-link in bootstrapping

Bug Description

Consider the following scenario:
* run bootstrap.py with a virtuenv'ed Python that has setuptools in its site-packages
* run bootstrap.py again, this time with a non-virtualev'ed Python that does not has setuptools in its site-packages

The first run writes the file develop-eggs/setuptools.egg-link, which cases buildout to see the site-packages directory
The second run downloads setupools and installs it under eggs/, but doesn't remove the egg-link file, so later buildout still uses that site-packages directory
