    **Important note: If you installed Zope from an RPM or a another
    "vendor distribution" instead of installing a Zope
    Corporation-distributed binary or source release, the instructions
    below may be not be applicable.  Under these circumstances, please
    read the documentation supplied by the vendor to determine how to
    start your Zope instance instead of relying on the instructions

       I installed zope on Gentoo using using portage (emerge zope). There is no start script, and I cannot find any
       reference for how to start zope without it!

       You're right, there is no script called 'start'. But there is /etc/init.d/zope-2_6_4 to start/stop zope.
       Works quite fine for me.
