If there isn't, you could write one on the Zope 3 wiki.  ;-)

Yep.

  svn co svn+ssh://svn.zope.org/repos/main/Zope3/trunk Zope3

or

  svn co svn+ssh://svn.zope.org/repos/main/Zope3/branches/3.3 Zope3

or replace the svn+ssh with svn

By typing 'make'.

I usually don't bother with mkzopeinstance, just symlink my packages
into src/ and drop a one-liner file into zopeskel/etc/package-includes/.

I'm not sure mkzopeinstance even works in a svn checkout.  IIRC I saw
a couple of reports of it failing when run from the checkut.  The
response usually was "you're not supposed to use it from a checkout;
run make install first, then use mkzopeinstance from the installation
directory".

This step looks deceptively simple. :-)

python test.py [options]

(in the root directory of the checkout).

Make sure you have gcc, make, python-dev installed, then type 'make'.

No idea.  I ran away to more developer-friendly OSes a long time ago.

python test.py -s module

I am not sure if there's a way to make Zope 3 and its test runner notice
my packages without symlinking them into src/.

zc.buildout may be the answer.  I haven't used it on my projects yet,
because what I already use works well enough for me.
