What exactly do you mean by 'use the grok trunk in my project'? Could
you elaborate a bit on your use case?

It's a Python package or egg like any other package and should be
available in your buildout-eggs directory or similar. 

If you want to have 'your own' grok with your project (i.e.: use a local
copy of grok instead of the released package fetched by buildout), you
can put the sources in a separate directory `grok` in your project root
and declare this directory as a `develop` package in the [buildout]
section of your buildout config (see the second line)::

   develop = . grok
   parts = myproject data zopectl test
   find-links = http://download.zope.org/distribution/
   newest = false
   versions = versions


But I must confess, that I did not entirely understand your problem yet.
You might don't have to build a 'private' grok.

Kind regards,
