[Distutils] Building an egg from Subversion using zc.buildout

I'm using zc.buildout for deploying a handful of applications, and one
of our dependencies doesn't have eggs or "correctly" formatted pages
(that would allow easy_install to track down the repository for direct
building from source).  Does zc.buildout provide any way to build an egg
from a Subversion URL?  Something with similar behavior to:

easy_install -m -d ./eggs http://path/to/svn/repos

I'm happy to write a recipe if necessary, just thought I'd make sure
someone else hadn't already scratched this itch.
