Hi All,

As a result of the Debian 5.0 release, psycopg2 needs to be recompiled 
to use the new shared library:

     import psycopg2 as psycopg
   File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/psycopg2/__init__.py", line 60, in 
   File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/psycopg2/_psycopg.py", line 7, in 
   File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/psycopg2/_psycopg.py", line 6, in 
ImportError: libpq.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or 

How do I tell buildout to recompile this egg?
