I'm not looking to use AMQP. I just wanted to stand up a test VM with 
'nine' and possibly develop against it. I'm using a Vagrant Debian VM 
with my puppet module that successfully sets up buildbot 0.8.X. I've 
added a few packages for installation, but I can't seem to set up 
buildbot 'nine'.

Because I wrote the automation (puppet module) to set up buildbot, I'm 
certain that the same steps are being followed for 'nine', because I'm 
using the same scripts for set up.

I'm just trying to set up a simple buildbot VM for 'nine'.

FYI, I have destroyed the VM and rebuilt from scratch, so there should 
be no residual cruft.
