It does use distutils, owing to the work of Matt Behrens and Shane on
the setup.py file.  The configure; make stuff just wraps distutils to a
large degree.

As other folks mentioned, we made a conscious decision to not have an
XML config file format.  That said, the "schema" (the allowable values
and sections) of the config file may be in XML and might even use ZCML
(if I can figure it out).  I have been paying attention to RDM's
checkins to the metameta stuff on the Zope 3 branch, but I still haven't
quite figured out how to use ZCML for this purpose.  I've got a homebrew
solution that does use XML now.

Thanks!  Cheapskate.  I think you owe me at least two other beers
anyway. ;-)
