My best guess would be creating a new project with grokproject, telling 
it not to run buildout. Then I guess you have to poke arround in the 
config files it generates to set the correct paths manually.

But I would really advise you to use buildout and have isolated 
application environments. Unless you have a very very specific goal with 
this. If you have, could you please tell us? We might not be aware of 
valid use cases for running grok based on system-installed packaged.
