Especially this section:
  b. Zope 3.1 and higher

     * Enter the `releases/` directory in your Zope 3 root. From there 
you can build and test the release. The directory contains all necessary 
     * Use the following command to create the package:

                ../../zpkgtools/bin/zpkg -r Zope-3.3.0b1 -C Zope.cfg Zope

Note: you really have to use the zpkgtools from the trunk, as shown a 
couple of lines above.

However, as the standard configuration points to the SVN with a URL that 
includes the version, I was only able to build with the version label 
"3.3.0b1" as I otherwise would have had to create a tag in SVN. Maybe 
changing the configuration a bit can circumvent this for you. I didn't 
bother to look.
