I'm getting an error when I run make on Zope 3.1.0.  The system is running 
SuSE 10.0, Python 2.4.1 (default with SuSE distro), gcc version 4.0.2 
20050901 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux), kernel 2.6.13-15.  I am running make as 
the local user, not root.

cmire at linux:~/Zope-3.1.0> make
/usr/bin/python install.py -q build
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "install.py", line 22, in ?
    import zpkgsetup.setup
  File "/home/cmire/Zope-3.1.0/Support/zpkgsetup/setup.py", line 34, in ?
    from distutils.cmd import Command
ImportError: No module named distutils.cmd
make: *** [build] Error 1

Here is line 34 of the setup.py file referenced in the error:

from distutils.cmd import Command

I googled for this error, but only got two hits back (in French).  It appears 
that situation was due to some issues with gcc 3.0.2 for Debian.
