FWIW, I've had no problems with this, here's a sample buildout.cfg:

[buildout]
extensions = lovely.buildouthttp
find-links = https://example.com/password/protected/folder

...and just dump the .tgz sdists in that folder.

Of course, if you don't need password protection such as when you have 
your "egg server" on a private network, you just need the find-links.

I'm not really sure why people have written a complicated array of "egg 
servers" and the like when a simple http or file system served folder is 
just fine ;-)

cheers,

Chris
