First off, let me state:
1) I Thank everybody who has worked so had on make this excellent zope 
product.  And all the people who have expended their free time to help me!

2) I'm not trying to argue anybody into my work for me, but am trying to 
understand the problems and concepts as they affect my systems.

Having said that....

Jens,  I thought that the linus file standard (what ever its called) was to 
use "/usr" when a user installs product and to "/opt" when it is a "Distro" 
product, in other words the place where a product is installed should not be 
hard coded.  

At any-rate the problems seams to be that you use a variable out of the Python 
distribution (which defines where python is installed) as the place to 
install zope (as defined by the config variable).

From my programming experience, I really expect that you got a name clash in 
your installation routines.  

So as this is an all volunteer effort, I'm volunteering today, to try to hunt 
it down.  Although a single day to understand a system as compley as the 
installation of zope is probably ludicrous.  But I do have the machines setup 
and profesional tools to use...

Can anybody help me in my goal of tracking this down?
