Hi Doug,

You can do this easily by using the ports tree.  First, add the
following to your /etc/make.conf (create the file if necessary):

PYTHON_DEFAULT_VERSION=python2.6

Next, do this:

cd /usr/ports/devel/py-setuptools && make install clean

You should be all set, and any other Python port that you install will
use the Python 2.6 installation, assuming you installed it from the
ports tree.

Hope that helps,
Greg
