I'm afraid it is not fully correct. The proper way to do this is by
modifying the buildout configuration:

in your buildout.cfg look for the zopectl section. You will see an entry
there that defines the zope.conf that should be used. Modify that to
look like this:

  zope.conf = ${data:zconfig}
         type PostmortemDebuggingHTTP
         address 8080

if you rerun buildout your zope.conf will be updated to use the
PostmortemDebuggingHTTP server.

I had to figure out that yesterday as well :)
