USE_PYDISTUTILS and easy_install

Hello list,

I'm currently trying to create my first port. The program to port is
python-based and the contains an install_requires directive.
I was wondering if dependencies could be triggered by the
file by just putting USE_PYDISTUTILS=easy_install in the Makefile, or
do I have to use RUN_DEPENDS and BUILD_DEPENDS variables?
I searched for ports using USE_PYDISTUTILS=easy_install, but all I
have looked into also use RUN_DEPENDS and BUILD_DEPENDS.
