I came across a build (PF Sense) where Python 2.7 was installed, and luckily the setuptools and pip .whl files were on the system but not installed. I found a cool little "hack" to install them directly.

python pip-10.0.1-py2.py3-none-any.whl/pip install --no-index pip-10.0.1-py2.py3-none-any.whl
# same can be done for the setuptools whl file
