Yes, we use zc.buildout-1.5.2 with a project that runs Pyramid on
Google's App Engine. I run the development environment in Gentoo, and
I have net-zope/zope-interface installed in
/usr/lib64/python?.?/site-packages/zope/interface. When I run buildout
with a system Python that's ABI is supported by the zope-inteface
ebuild, it will use the one from the system site-packages. IOW,

Have you tried the allowed-eggs-from-site-packages [1] option?
