It should work, but distribute, setuptools and zc.buildout versions can 
cause problems like this.

You may have a buildout setting that prevents you from checking for 
newer versions.  Try 'bin/buildout -n' to see if that helps.  It 
probably does not help, but it is fast to try.

Otherwise, run 'python bootstrap.py' again (with the proper python 
version for your buildout, so 2.6 or 2.7 in the case of Plone 4.3).

If the bootstrap gives problems, try it with a fresh bootstrap for 
zv.buildout 1.x:

BTW, it seems very strange to me that an add-on (collective.xmpp.chat) 
requires a newer version of distribute, as you say.  I would not expect 

I hope this helps,
