I'm not entirely sure what you're trying to do.
Buildout is capable of building develop eggs from source directories.
I don't think you can build regular eggs from source directories. You
also want to run the setup with certain distributions in the path.
There isn't support for doing that presently, although folks would
find it useful. It would be possible to write a recipe that did both
of these things. You would then define a part for the egg you wanted
to install, where that part would use the recipe. You'd want to list
that part before other parts that need that egg.
