easy_install didn't grab the packaged version we made available on our ftp

Indeed. If you don't have forest, you can download them individually from
http://www.logilab.org/hg/cubes/... A few of them should be easy_installable
(blog and comment for instance). The standard directory for cubes is
/usr/share/cubicweb/cubes, but that's  vary according to your installation.

Can you type in a python shell:

  from cubicweb.devtools import devctl

I guess you'll have an import error telling what's missing.
