Ok, I found it.

On the advice of others, I put a file in my
/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/distutils called distutils.cfg. This file
contained the following:
install_lib = /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages
install_scripts = /usr/local/bin

site_dirs = /usr/local/lib/python2.5/site-packages
zip_ok = 0

I use some python software that has lots of eggs and dependencies, and was
advised that it's best to keep that stuff in /usr/local/lib so that it
doesn't conflict with Debian-managed /usr/lib. I think that this process is
detailed on the setuptools website.

If I deactivate this file, the package python-zodb_3.6.0-6_amd64.deb does
indeed compile cleanly with the patch supplied by Esteve.

Thanks to all; I'm cooking again.

Thanks Esteve (and all)!
