LDAP was only an example. Some python modules require special building 
settings, which usually aren't included on the binary distributions.

Did you try finding the python used by zope and checked if it has 
m2crypto installed? I think theoretically the installation should work 
also with the binaries as well. You only need to know where your files 
are and the rest shouldn't be difficult. Afterall, I think m2Crypto 
isn't a complicated module and doesn't have special requirements.
