You can look at :

This buildout build a python with buildout as a "minitage system dependency".

Note that the url points to a recent SVN snapshot as there are many ox
snowleopard related bugs (blockers) fixed in trunk.

This buildout uses minitage.recipe.cmmi which is suported and well tested ...
You have hooks available at each stage of the build sequence, and many more
features that in zc.recipe.cmmi. Options documentation is shared between the
".cmmi" and the ".common" recipe.

IMO, you must remove from that the minitage-flags.diff bits at it's a way for me
o force compilation of all extensions module i know i will be able to compile
inside a minitage environment for this buildout, you are DONE.

For your setup with cStringIO commented, you must be on an unsupported
environment, this module must be always be compiled (triggered via setup.py)
look at your lib/python-2.6/lib-dynload if there is any "cStringIO.so".

See [1].
