Comment (by ronf):

 Ok - I think I found it. Somehow, in addition to setuptools-65.6.3.dist-
 info being present in
 /site-packages, there was also a directory named setuptools-62.1.0.dist-
 info present alongside it. Even though the "setuptools" in that same
 parent directory appeared to be the new version, somehow the presence of
 this older version was confusing things. Once that was removed, the cython
 install succeeded. Once again, I have no idea why cython was sensitive to
 this, though, while nothing else using setuptools in python 3.10 had any

 Sorry for wasting your time here. I appreciate the help!
