Take a look at site.txt in the zope.app.component for documentation on
sites. When instantiating a Grok app outside Grok, I think you need to
explicity set the site with zope.app.component.hooks.setSite():

  import zope.app.component.hooks
  root['test'] = app = MyWonderfulApp(...)

Then your local components should work as-expected (hopefully ... the
sites stuff is not my area of expertise)
