[Distutils] Brand new, clean server, set up from scratch, buildbot still fails

This is running on a bare system, after figuring out which development  
tools were needed, all the version control systems necessary etc.  I  
have all that captured in my Fabric script so we're all set for being  
able to duplicate it.

I have NOT installed anything into the system Python at all.  In fact,  
other than the tools necessary to pull the products out of VCS, and  
the compilers and such, I haven't installed (or done) anything to the  
system at all.  That's kind of the point.  We want to be able to go  
from bare metal to running buildbot completely automatically.

I don't quite understand what this thing is supposed to be doing but  
I'm sure it's not doing everything it needs to do to get itself  
"bootstrapped"; on a fresh Ubuntu install, anyway.

BTW, on my OS X development system, running the system Python 2.6.1,  
it doesn't have any trouble at all except for this little gem early in  
the process.

/usr/bin/python "-c" "from setuptools.command.easy_install import  
main; main()" "-mUNxd" "/Users/ssteiner/Dropbox/work/distutils-builbot/ 
eggs/tmptMBdZk" "-q" "/Users/ssteiner/Dropbox/src/twisted_trunk"

Getting required 'zope.interface'
   required by collective.buildbot 0.3.5.
   required by Twisted 8.2.0-r27376.

  and then it carries on.

However, when trying to run it with /bin/test, something tries to  
refer to "trunk-checkout" when the python trunk was actually checked  
out into python-trunk.

(~/work/distutils-builbot)# bin/test
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "bin/test", line 12, in <module>
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Users/ssteiner/work/ 

All in all, I really can't get it to build or run anywhere at this
