It looks like something intarweb depends on is (include)ing setup-helper.
That egg is a constant source of trouble, especially when people use the
deprecated way of using it, through (include).  You'd have to grep the
sources and find the culprit, then report a bug to the respective egg's

Kon, if you're reading this: It would be nice if setup-helper could
detect this deprecated usage and simply error.  That would temporarily
break some eggs, but at least it would help us find the broken ones.
In the long run, this will save everyone a world of grief (this causes
issues with cross-compilation, static compilation, deploy mode and
alternative repository paths in general).
