I'm a newbie.  Have successfully installed the precompiled Zope 
2.2.2 on Solaris 2.6, running with apache 1.3.14 via fastcgi.  
Now trying to install ZPatterns-0-4-3b2.  Untarred it into the 
zope dirs, so now its source is in zope/lib/python/Products/ZPatterns 

Following the instructions in README.txt, I looked for a 
Makefile.pre.in ... it wasn't included, so I looked around in 
the zope distribution and found one in /lib/python/Shared/DC/xml/pyexpat 
-- it claims to be "Universal Unix Makefile for Python extensions", 
and it says it works with Python 1.5 or newer:

# Build *and install* the basic Python 1.5 distribution.  See the
# Python README for instructions.  (This version of Makefile.pre.in
# only withs with Python 1.5, alpha 3 or newer.)
       ^^^^^ (sic -- is that a Python idiom?  :^)

... so I figured it might work, but when I try 
"make -f Makefile.pre.in boot", I get the following:

rm -f *.o *~
rm -f *.a tags TAGS config.c Makefile.pre python sedscript
rm -f *.so *.sl so_locations
VERSION=`python -c "import sys; print sys.version[:3]"`; \
installdir=`python -c "import sys; print sys.prefix"`; \
exec_installdir=`python -c "import sys; print sys.exec_prefix"`; \
make -f ./Makefile.pre.in VPATH=. srcdir=. \
        installdir=$installdir \
        exec_installdir=$exec_installdir \
make: Fatal error: Don't know how to make target 
Current working directory /vol01/software/zope/lib/python/Products/ZPatterns
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `boot'


What blockheaded thing am I doing?
