libimobiledevice is a cross-platform software library that talks the
protocols to support iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Apple TV devices.
Unlike other projects, it does not depend on using any existing
proprietary libraries and does not require jailbreaking. It allows
other software to easily access the device's filesystem, retrieve
information about the device and its internals, backup/restore the
device, manage SpringBoard icons, manage installed applications,
retrieve addressbook/calendars/notes and bookmarks and synchronize
music and video to the device.

This port installs the library required to handle Apple Binary and XML
Property Lists.

Use setuptools for all Python ports.

Setuptools is the preferred method to manage Python distributions after
many changes to the packaging ecosystem over the past couple of years.

Only ports using USE_PYDISTUTILS= yes are affected by this commit, ports using
USE_PYDISTUTILS= easy_install remains the same however this usage is now
deprecated and should be converted to USE_PYDISTUTILS= yes.

Some Python distributions do not work with setuptools out of the box because
they extend the install command from distutils and not setuptools, and
so they need to be patched accordingly.

pip (which leverages setuptools) works around the issue by using eggs, however
we want to get rid of those as well, as support for "flat" installation is
