The 'download-directory' is not a valid buildout option (I know it was
used/documented in some Plone buildouts). You can change your
~/.buildout/default.cfg file to have the 'download-cache' setting. This will
put all the files that buildout fetches over the internet in one place, so
new projects will save some bandwidth (or if you need to run offline?). In
any case, buildout is just telling you it's ignoring that option, so it's
not the source of your problem ...

... which I have no idea about. Perhaps try "easy_install -U grokproject"
and "easy_install -U zc.buildout" to make sure you have the newest versions.
Or if you can coerce a more detailed traceback/debug information perhaps
someone has an idea.
