Thanks Steve,

But the problem is that there is no bin/buildout script at this stage. And absolute paths in parts/buildout/site may be wrong. I'm talking about bootstraping a project I shall make using "buildout:install-from-cache=true" or with the "-No" option that seems to do the same thing.

So the bin/buildout command does not exist or contains wrong "sys.path" patches.

My solution is nearly ready and I shall blog about this in few.

Kind regards
Gilles Lenfant
