Re. to the PIL problem: I had this same problem when I installed PIL  
using easy_install. When using the older "python setup.py install"  
everything was OK again.
Another thing to verify is that the python you are using for Zope is  
really the one you were looking at. So verify that you really have one  
python install on your system.
