[Zope] Zope on Solaris

It's up and running fine on Solaris 8. Converting it to a zip file did the
trick. If you are interested in creating a zip file for downloading, here
are the Linux commands I used:

tar xvzf Zope-2.5.1-solaris-2.6-sparc.tgz
zip -ry Zope-2.5.1-solaris-2.6-sparc.zip Zope-2.5.1-solaris-2.6-sparc

The resulting file, Zope-2.5.1-solaris-2.6-sparc.zip, was slightly larger
(8480279 bytes) than the .tgz file, but so much easier to install on a stock
Solaris system. I understand that Solaris 9 will include a lot of GNU tools,
and all I can say is "it's about time".

Thanks for your help with this.
