[patch] always install python's eggs as unpacked files

I've got two problems with python's eggs installed from ports.

As you know, many eggs install from ports as archives and then 
unprivileged pseudo-user tries to use them, it's got an error about 
can't creating PYTHON_EGG_CACHE.  That's OK, I've just set environment 
"PYTHON_EGG_CACHE=/var/tmp" and all works quite well.  But a week ago I 
needed to run two daemons that use pymongo and I couldn't do this.  The 
first daemon created PYTHON_EGG_CACHE and unpacked pymongo, but the 
second couldn't create PYTHON_EGG_CACHE because PYTHON_EGG_CACHE already 
exists!  Even though they both run as "nobody".

The second problem with that behaviour is when you're installing some 
python module from packages you need the Internet connection to get an 
egg from site and build it on-the-fly.

Please, inspect my patch.  I think that's a good solution for that problems.
