I don't see how that helps. But in any case it's not ported to Python
3 yet afaik.

I do not get a zope-testrunner or even a bin directory when doing this.

I have, and it says to run python dev.py. Dev py import zc.buildout.
That fails, as zc.buildout isn't ported to Python 3 yet.

This is the same bootstrapping problem I had with setuptools (who uses
itself to install/build itself) and zope.testing (who uses it's own
testrunner to run the tests).

For setuptools we fixed it by an ugly hack that means 2to3 is run on
all of setuptools as soon as you run setup.py. For zope.testing I made
a custom test command for setuptools that creates a test-script in the
temp directory "manually", and then calls it, which is possibly a
slightly less ugly hack.

Possibly that last trick might work for zc.buildout too, I haven't investigated.
