I don't necessarily know the _best_ way, but in a buildout environment:
- in the src directory, use paster to create a Plone product ("myproduct"), 
in the Products namespace, 
- then use ArchGenXML in the src/myproduct/Products/myproduct directory. 

Theoretically, of course, you can put the product in any namespace, and I've 
done it for portlets, but I've had trouble with putting full products in any 
namespace but Products (I haven't tried too hard, though).

I'd love to hear if there's a better way.

Doing it this way you have a "development egg" - and you can use all the 
usual egg tools.
