If you install the blast_datatypes repository into your Galaxy instance using the tool shed installation process everything necessary is handled for you automatically, but I understand you are not yet installing from the tool shed.
If you are not installing, you'll have to manually download the repository contents from the tool shed using the "Repository Actions" pop-up menu and place the contained xml.py file in the appropriate location so it can be loaded when you start your Galaxy server. You'll then need to manually add the datatype entries in your datatypes_conf.xml file as they used to be.
