If I have a utility component whose initializaiton depends on the

So if in the initilization code of utility B I need to look up a
utility A, the ZCML configuration will  fail.

That's why you shouldn't look up any components in __init__ :)

The problem is that although the z3c eninge object is created before
the 'utility' directive is executed, it is not registered and
therefore can not be looked up when the 'utility' directive tries to
create the MyUtility object.

How does one usually solve such interdependencies?

Look up the utility when you actually *need* it. This is a general rule of thumb, because you always want to preserve the possibility of local utilities coming from some local sites, and those aren't available during some initialization code.
