I just downloaded and installed Zope 3.1 on another Gentoo box (with the same /etc/profile as the one depicted below). That (second) one worked without any issues whatsoever. The major differences between the two boxes is that the first box is using an Athlon64 chip (with Gentoo's amd64 installation), and the second box is an older Pentium III (using Gentoo's x86 installation).

This, of course, begs the question of some 64-bit compatibility issue.

I noticed that when it builds (using make) that a --skip-build parameter is included. Could the lack of that particular building be a problem?

I've seen this before in the bug track list, but has anyone got a workaround? I'm using Zope on Gentoo Linux (2.6.13-r2 kernel) with python 2.3.5 and and GCC 3.4.4.

Just a guess.  Do you have net-zope/zopeinterface installed?  It
provides a package named "zope" in /usr/lib/[system
python]/site-packages.  This might make weird namespace issues.

Nope. Not this time. For one, I've had notoriously bad luck with that application (I prefer to install from source myself). Secondly, the package that you mentioned is masked for my architecture (~amd64).

Good thought, though.
