That did the trick, thanks!  I'm now running into a missing dependency
(Zope) that should be simple to tackle.

An easy solution would be to just make sure your new installation of
(2.4) appears first in the PATH setting of the environment where you are
executing the "buildbot start" command. I do this on systems where I'm a
guest and can't go mucking about with the installed toolset.
