I've been working on a branch of zc.buildout that uses distribute 
instead of setuptools:


...and I've hit a problem at the first hurdle. I've changed dev.py to 
use distribute, but by the time the subprocess call is made to setup.py, 
even though .../eggs/distribute-0.6-py2.6.egg is on PYTHONPATH, I get:

   File ".../setup.py", line 20, in <module>
     from distribute import setup, find_packages
ImportError: No module named distribute

I wonder if you could try out that branch and see if you can reproduce 
it? If you can, any hints as to what the problem might be would be great :-)
