First, this is really the wrong list. zc.buildout doesn't have anything 
to do with Zope. Questions about zc.buildout should go to the distutils 
mailinglist, I believe.

Anyway, you're missing installing the eggs using the zc.recipe.egg 
recipe, e.g.::

recipe = zc.recipe.egg
eggs = ${test:eggs}

And then add 'scripts' to the parts list.
