Automatically installing libraries?

Here is a problem I am trying to solve; I am sure there must be an easy
way to do it and I just don't know how.

I have a rather large application that I am writing. To make it easy for
the user to run I have them run a startup.py script. This script will
try to load each of the third party libraries the application will need.
If it is present, great. If it isn't, I would like to automatically
install it. This is the heart of my problem: is there a Python
equivalent to PERL's CPAN?

Peace,
Chaz

Check out setuptools:

Not quite. But you should definitively have a look at setuptools before
proceeding to reinventing the SquareWheel(tm):
