Solved.  This documents (a small part of) my circuitous route:

I decided to start from scratch and: create a fresh virtualbox Ubuntu server
12.04 on my laptop, get all proper libs installed, then reinstall Plone with
the unified installer.  Finally, move archived zinstance folder back the new
install, rerun buildout.  Unfortunately I got the same results as original
problem--maybe not a libs issue (guess it was, but somehow the problem was
also in the original zinstance--but I'm getting ahead of myself)?  

*Here's what I did with the fresh Ubuntu server:
*sudo apt-get install openssh-server
sudo apt-get install zlib1g-dev
sudo apt-get install libjpeg62-dev
sudo apt-get install build-essential python2.7-dev
sudo apt-get install libreadline-gplv2-dev
sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev

*And to install Plone:*
tar xzf Plone-4.2-UnifiedInstaller-update-1.tgz
cd Plone-4.2-UnifiedInstaller/
./install.sh standalone

*And to move in old zinstance:
*mv  zinstance/ ~/ ##moves the new zinstance directory just created to my
home folder.
scp -r me at /home/me/Plone
##moves the previously copied zinstance from the developed instance stored
on my laptop to its proper place in new instance.
./bin/buildout -n ##several error messages
./bin/buildout -n ##no error messages this time.
./bin/plonectl start

Looks exactly like previous site, image problems included.

So, made new Plone site, went to ZMI, added same user from original site,
copied the folders I'd created in the original site (described in the steps
above) and pasted them into the new site.  It all works.

Thanks Steve for getting me on the track of the missing libs/rebuilding
