Eggs don't have buildouts. The zope3 eggs don't have buildouts in them. 
The source distribution does, but not the eggs. (that's nitpicking, I know)

Not much more. But it's a _plone_ buildout, so I wouldn't expect any 
less. :P

If you're just doing a zope egg, or a standard python egg, I don't think 

is too hard to do before you run paster create -t basic_namespace (or 
whatever) in the src directory.
