It does. All git checkouts build in developer mode, all developer mode builds enable the experimental modules by default.

As for talloc, yes it probably will still be bundled, but just to get things working we added it as an external dependency.

Packaged talloc seems to work fine on the systems we've tested, so for now just:

sudo apt-get install libtalloc-dev
sudo yum install libtalloc-devel
brew install talloc

The plan is for CI builds to build as much as possible, hence the request for the SecurID libraries. I guess we'll have to get oracle instaclient from somewhere as well, and I shudder to think what the mssql client requires, probably sacrificial chickens and puppie dogs.
