Apparently, copying "zope/component/tests/__init__.py"
to "<myhomedirectory>/>Zope-2.8.4-final/build-base/python-2.4/build- lib/zope/component/tests/__init__.py"

Well no, actually - the file gets copied! i checked.
But make stops at that point.

Obviously I've substituted <myhomedirectory> for the actual path.
This error is what I get if I run make as root - if I run as a user,
I get "Permission denied".

Is "<myhomedirectory>" an NFS mount?
Then, there are probably special restrictions for "root" use.

No, it's local.

Does the (non root) user have write permissions on "<myhomedirectory>"?

yes, it's that user's own directory. I chown'ed everything in it to make sure the user was the owner, and got similar results (on a different file name, but same scenario).
