It's not to so much the buildbot. I haven't gotten that far yet.
The "current" problem is that the twisted application comes with an
installation application of its own and finds (and uses) the pre-
bundled Python 2.5
Despite the fact that 2.4.6 is in the path.
and typing "python" in a terminal window runs python 2.4.6

The twisted application upon startup shows that it is using 2.5 and
subsequently fails.
