If you install Python using

you should never get into such trouble. Somehow your environment or setup must 
be broken.
Possibly you're installing Zope over an existing Zope installation with 
possibly old
zopectl/runzope files inside the 'bin' folder
which won't be replaced by "make install". So check the "python" configuration 
within your
bin/zopectl|runzope files.
Thanks again - the above is what I thought I did (matching the --prefix and the

I'll try again and hopefully get it right. Thanks for the extra assist.
Well, I'm not crazy. I just rebuilt it all and triple checked that I gave the 
--with-python when configuring the zope build. I did. And, it did not get 
used...the zopectl and
runzope files were created with the default path (to the wrong python) anyhow!

did you really delete the existing files in your bin folder before installing 
zope again? these
files are NOT recreated!

Yes. I deleted all files and directories created when building python 2.3 and zope 2.8.8 the first time and started over.

And when startup of zope failed with the same error I checked the control files again and they had the default python path and not the one I specified with --with-python in the configure.
