They are?

$ /opt/python26/bin/virtualenv z12
$ cd z12
$ bin/easy_install Zope2
$ bin/mkzopeinstance -d testinst
$ cd testinst
$ more etc/site.zcml

<include files="package-includes/*-configure.zcml" />
  <five:loadProducts />

Looks like it's there. OK, so the directory doesn't exist, but you can
create it.

Most people today develop using buildout, where the zope instance
recipe will create the snippets for you. But that's a different topic,
