Of course you can get a checkout of any package you wish from
svn.zope.org, including the zc.* packages. However, they'll likely have
dependencies which you will have to resolve as well. Some might also
define entry points which means they really want to be installed as eggs.

Why do you use checkouts? Do you actually change the packages while
you're developing with them?

Have you looked at zc.buildout? Checkout the tutorial [1]. Also, pretty
much any zope.* or zc.* package's sandbox is set up using buildout these
days, providing you with lots of examples.
