I'm not sure if this helps, but for me the trick to install PrimaGIS
successfully was to make sure that PCL is installed properly. To check
this I ran
query.py from the PCL examples manually in a python shell (You need to
edit paths in query.py first). If this worked, everything else would
also work. If it did not, ZCO would not
be available through Zope.
