Actually python-setuptools should be part of depends, not makedepends, as it's required at runtime.

Easy to verify:

$ sudo pacman -R python-setuptools
$ bmaptool create some-image.img > tmp.bmap
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/bmaptool", line 6, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'pkg_resources'

This is mentioned at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Python_package_guidelines#setuptools

Why don't you use the official tar (ftp) instead? ftp://ftp.infradead.org/pub/bmap-tools/
