Public bug reported:

As far as I see it correctly, module development can currently not be done 
without checking out zorba sources and compiling it. One reason are the module 
dependencies
E.g. the following dependency in the http-client module works only, if the data 
converter sources are available:
FIND_PACKAGE(zorba_data-converters_module REQUIRED
  HINTS ${DATA_CONVERTERS_BUILD_DIR})

And testing seems to be possible only if the build directory of zorba is
available.

Would be nice if those two things (defining module dependencies and
writing/executing tests for a module) were possible with the Zorba
installation. I should not be necessary to compile zorba to hack a new
module.

Chris, I assigned the bug to you because I know you are the master of
this stuff. You might have comments on this. Thanks in advance!
