If only it was that simple. It has always been that simple in the past, but then my local python was newer than the one shipped with the distro. > Then build zope from source like so: > > ./configure --with-python=/usr/local/bin/python2.3 --prefix=... > make > make install > > Does that not work?

Doing ./configure --prefix, make, then make install didn't produce any errors, but attempting to run zope did.
