Zope 2.9.2 Installation Problem

Yo everybody....


I'm installing Zope 2.9.2 on 10.1 RC1.
10.1 has the correct version of python 2.4.2.
but the zope make install script fails.

My investigation shows it does not like the
OpenSuse python configuration, specifically
I need to turn off the python disutils.cfg
which I did it with following command:

mv /usr/lib64/python2.4/distutils/distutils.cfg /usr/lib64/python2.4/distutils/distutils.cfg.save

Then zope installs and works no problem....

the distutils.cfg file contains:

[install]
prefix=/usr/local


To be honest I'm not sure of the what/why/when of this.
can anyone explain to me what effect the renaming of the file has?
and while you are at it, maybe the idea behind setting it up so in SUSE?
