Dumb question: Did you run 'python bootstrap.py' at least once?

You may want to Google this, it doesn't sound like a Plone or Zope 
specific problem.

In the meantime, try to find a source distribution (that is, one that 
has a setup.py file at the root) for python-openid and check it 
out/extract it to src/python-openid in the buildout, and add it to the 
'develop' list in the '[buildout]' section.

This will make buildout take the code from there and not try to download 
it from the cheeseshop.

If you're still stuck, try the distutils-sig mailing list (also in 
gmane), since this appears to be a setuptools related problem.
