This is partly a problem of Sextante and partly QGIS problem:
- sextante should not try to do anything in __init__.py (e.g. imports)
- the imports should be moved into classFactory() so that nothing
happens unless the plugin is explicitly started. (this problem will go
away once we stop using metadata from __init__.py and only use them
from metadata.txt)
- when QGIS is run from build directory, it doesn't copy the internal
python plugins to the build output directory - that's why sextante is
complaining about missing plugin installer. We should probably fix
that in order to provide an environment that is as similar to the
installed one as possible

Not sure about that, if you are running latest main branch maybe that
is a side-effect of recent raster refactoring?
