This command should forcefully deintsall second package and replace it 
with first one. I'm not using portupgrade, I switched to portmaster long 
time ago so I can't help you with it.

If you want to make the switch by hand I think you should:

pkg_delete -f py27-setuptools-0.6c11_3
# now write down the whole list of dependent packages

cd /usr/ports/devel/py-distribute ; make install clean
portupgrade -f ..list of packages that require setuptools..

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.
