I'm trying to install Silva 3.0.2 under Debian Squeeze according this

1) First at all, I did a fresh install of python 2.7.5 and zope 2.13.21. I'm
not using binary packages from debian and Zope is up and running.
2) I already had: zlib + headers, libjpeg + headers.
3) I installed PIL 1.1.7 with JPEG, PNG, and OpenType/TrueType. The PIL
installation successfully detected the libraries.
4) I also installed libXML2 and libXSLT + headers

Then I tried the Silva installation:
svn co https://svn.infrae.com/buildout/silva/tag/Silva-3.0.2 Silva
cd Silva
/usr/local/zope/2.13.21/bin/python2.7 bootstrap.py --buildout-profile

But I'm getting the error message at the end of this message, which tells
basically: " Error: Bad constraint 0.6c11 setuptools>=0.7"

So, after that, I tried upgrading setuptools to 0.9.0:
wget https://bitbucket.org/pypa/setuptools/downloads/ez_setup.py -O - |

Then I deleted deleted the previous Silva folder and downloaded it again
from svn. But I'm still getting the error message.

When I checked the setuptools version like this:
Python 2.7.5 (default, Jul 19 2013, 16:41:17)
[GCC 4.4.5] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import setuptools
>>> setuptools.__version__

As you see, the version reported by python is 0.9.6, so, I don't know what's
the problem here. What else can I try?

The first line of bin/buildout contains:

So, the right python binary is being used.

Thanks in advanced.

Best regards
