[Distutils] Problem using zc.recipe.cmmi to build Python

In pursuit of a buildout for my core environment, I try the following:
recipe = zc.recipe.cmmi
url = http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.6.3/Python-2.6.3rc1.tgz
make fails with
ImportError: No module named cStringIO
because ./configure creates a Modules/Setup which says
if I uncomment that line the make is fine.
I haven't found a way to tell $:./configure or $:make to do that,
zc.recipe.cmmi doesn't seem to provide a hook between configure and make.
If someone can tell me to fix this with options or environment I'm done.
If not, I welcome advice on alternatives to zc.recipe.cmmi,
(which I would consider the 'standard' solution.(darn you Shuttleworth
for co-opting the word 'canonical' :-)))
- comb through the many xx.xx.cmmi recipes
(without a sense of associated quality or support level)
- pick a xx.xx.command recipe and write a part which does what I want
- write my own 'recipe.build-interp'
