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"
fails.

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

It is likely that the copying process wants to modify permissions
and/or access times and that this raises the "Operation not permitted"
error.

That sounds reasonable, but if I'm root (or the owner of the directory, for that matter) at the time I run make, what else can I do to get out of it?

Does the whole directory need to be world-writable?
