I don't know if it's a buildout thing.  I was only doing it indirectly, 
and you can't point to something that isn't a URL or HTML page with 
--find-links AFAICT.  I thought you couldn't point directly to a package 
with find-links (hence dependency_links), but I think I'm just confusing 
setup.py with easy_install.
