Thanks the for suggestions, but still no joy ;-)

I found that I didn't have the debian plone package installed, but
after I installed it I found out that it was just an empty package
which depends on the zope-cmfplone package which actually has the
code, and that was already installed.

I edited /etc/zope2.8/instance/plone-site/zope.conf and added

products /usr/lib/zope2.8/lib/python/Products
products /usr/lib/zope/lib/python/Products
products /usr/share/zope/Products
products $INSTANCE/Products

/usr/share/zope/Products is where cmf-plone put its stuff

So now I've run out of ideas.  I guess  I'll try the plone-setup mailing list.
