Ugh.  OK, here's the problem: the Zope port (un?)intentionally screws up the 
permissions of the installation.  Specifically, it unsets the writeable bit 
of every file under /usr/local/www/Zope, including those on files that Zope 
actually *needs* to be able to write to.  Run this:

   chown -R www:www /usr/local/zope
   chmod u+w /usr/local/zope/instance2/var/*
   chmod u+w /usr/local/zope/instance2/log/*

Repeat the last two as necessary to fix any other Zope instances you're trying 
to run.
