Update pip to 6.0.8 #1053

It seems we're a long way behind the current pip latest (1.2.1 vs 6.0.8) - it does seem like pip is now a standard module as of Python 2.7.9 which we're up-to-date on:

I wonder if there is still a need to build pip v1.2.1 if we have a default (more up to date) version packaged with the Python install? I'm a little uncertain if this new module is built in the current Python 2.7.9 build - seems like a import pip still brings up the older v1.2.1

@doutriaux1 @aashish24 any comments here?

@doutriaux1 did the build with the explicit pip 1.2.1 build removed fall over? Can we turn that off and just use the Python 2.7.9+ shipped version?

As discussed with @doutriaux1 this will have repercussions for many package installs - as a number of packages have a pip dependency (six for e.g.).

It would be great to remove all pip dependencies rather than update pip, as the updated version leads to issues with authentication (particularly at the lab, man in the middle).

Additionally pip will cause issues in the future as more up-to-date dependencies are installed rather than the versions associated with the tarballs housed on the source server.. Maintaining stability with older installs will require pip dependence to be removed.

@doutriaux1 should this be closed? It seems like pip is part of the latest Python releases, however setuptools may need to be updated - we're at 1.4 whereas the latest release is 17.1.1
