Hi Damon,

I'm not sure if this will help, but here's my build notes from the Zope 3.2.1 OS X Installer (with OSX-specific details removed)...


- Download Python 2.4.3 at http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.4.3/ Python-2.4.3.tgz

- Download Zope 3.2.1 at http://www.zope.org/Products/Zope3/3.2.1

- Create directory /opt/Zope-3.2.1

- Compile Python...

  ./configure --prefix=/opt/Zope-3.2.1/Python-2.4.3 --with-readline
  sudo make install

- Compile Zope...

./configure --prefix=/opt/Zope-3.2.1 --with-python=/opt/Zope-3.2.1/ Python-2.4.3/bin/python --force
  sudo make install

- Create Zope instance

sudo /opt/Zope-3.2.1/bin/mkzopeinstance --dir=/opt/Zope-3.2.1/ Instance --user=admin:$PASSWORD --password-manager=SHA1


My approach places all libraries and dependencies in one folder, allowing users who need to uninstall Zope 3.2.1 to simply delete a single folder.

There are a few more steps the installer's postinstall script takes care of, such as generating a random password for mkzopeinstance, adding the instance, adding an unprivileged OS X user account, adding a symbolic link (alias) that points from /Applications/Zope-3.2.1 to / opt/Zope-3.2.1, and setting the effective user to the unprivileged account (in etc/zdaemon.conf). See the OS X installer's postinstall script inside the installer metapackage for details.

I'm going to eventually place my build notes at zope.org, but I'm going to wait until at least a few users report that my installer works (--which it does, at least on my 10.4 PPC box).

I have successfully downloaded and installed the latest
Python 2.4.3.

I tried ./configure and got

Testing for an acceptable Python interpreter...

No suitable Python version found. You should install
Python version 2.4.2 before continuing. Versions
2.4.1 also work, but not as optimally.

I tried with the python switch
./configure --with-python /usr/sfw/bin/python
and there were no errors but when I tried to make it

bash-3.00# gmake
/usr/sfw/bin/python install.py -q build

    raise ValueError(

I saw one thread "Can't build Zope on OS X" where the poster had a
similar problem but no solution was offered there.  Has anyone built
Zope 3.2.1 on Solaris 10 or can anyone offer a suggested solution?
I don't fully understand the code but I guess it is searching for
files that match *-configure.zcml and I see that such files do
exist in various places in the project tree.
