Not with the checkout and the current zpkg.

I do consider this an unfortunate limitation in the implementation of
zpkg; some of the decisions in the implementation will need to change
to make it work differently, but I think it's really a matter of
implementation and not the basic design.

Distributions still allows all the distutils magic to happen, so
out-of-place builds should be entirely possible with the packaged
distribution.
