grokproject creates a buildout.cfg that pins down the list of eggs, by 
getting it from the web. Is the KSS buildout you are working with too 
old? I know that when Godefroid was working on at the Neanderthal sprint 
it we didn't have the pinning yet.

You need this in your buildout.cfg:

extends= http://grok.zope.org/releaseinfo/grok-0.11.1.cfg
versions = versions

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding you; if you were to start your KSS project 
with grokproject, there shouldn't be a problem (at most you also need to 
pin your KSS eggs to make sure it continues to install properly).
