You need to upgrade your setuptools before installing Askbot with pip. Here are the commands to install setuptool in your account:

mkdir -p ~/lib/python2.6
easy_install-2.6 setuptools==0.6c11
export PATH=$HOME/bin:$PATH

Then install pip for Python version 2.6:

easy_install-2.6 pip

Lastly install askbot with pip:

pip-2.6 install askbot

If you need a different version of Python just change 2.6 to the version need in the commands above.
