Hi all,

 Installing Suricata 4.1.1 under a CentOS 7.6 host, suricata-update's install during "make install" fails:

Making install in suricata-update
make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/oo/suricata-4.1.1/suricata-update'
make[2]: Entering directory `/tmp/oo/suricata-4.1.1/suricata-update'
cd . && \
        /bin/python setup.py build --build-base /tmp/oo/suricata-4.1.1/suricata-update \
        install --prefix /opt/suricata
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "setup.py", line 48, in <module>
    if any("pip" in arg for arg in distutils.sys.argv):

make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/oo/suricata-4.1.1/suricata-update'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

 With Suricata 4.1.0 this error doesn't exist. Any idea?
