Hmmm, I'm not sure where to begin.

A couple of questions, maybe we can figure out what exactly is going on 

* How did you create the virtualenv? With the "--no-site-packages" option?

* Could you try to "easy_install" zc.buildout, PasteScript and 
grokproject in this virtualenv? Does running the grokproject command 
then work?

That's what I can think of right now. Let's see if we can get this
