Been going more than a year now, and so far not had to resort to 05-devel.xzm, which I presume is meant by Development Tools.

The 05-devel module is only used for compiling software. It contains the programs make, cmake and others. If it is all gibberish then I would suggest that you don't need it. The only thing that may call it is the package manager USM if you find a package in slackbuilds and want to build it.

I suggest just downloading the ISO from here: http://dl.porteus.org/x86_64/current/ (if you have a 64bit machine)
Then you can download modules from the moduels folder. The online builder does exactly this, then packs it into one single ISO.
