Can you or someone who has seen this installer update the documentation, or at least explain how to install those extra packages? The one user I emailed with said there were no options of any kind when installing Xcode 4 from the App Store.

I've never installed XCode from the App Store, but I'm fairly certain it should be similar.  There should be an option to install UNIX Development and System Tools.

I don't think this is a change from previous versions.  The wiki already told users to select the UNIX Development package (I added the System Tools recommendation and removed the X11SDK reference just now), and those packages have been in XCode as long as I've been using it.
