You install from the index built from that same set of known good versions:
$ /path/to/virtualenv --no-site-packages /tmp/z2123
$ /tmp/z2123/bin/easy_install \
-i http://download.zope.org/Zope2/index/2.12.3/ Zope2
$ /tmp/z2123/bin/mkzopeinstance -d /tmp/instance -u admin:123
$ /tmp/instance/bin/zopectl fg

You just use the scripts in the 'bin' directory, as above. Sourcing
'activate' pollutes your shell's environment for the dubious benefit of
saving a couple of keystrokes.

Checkiog Zope out from SVN is not part of an appropriate installation
model for folks who are not interested in hackin on Zope itself.
