The problem is the open source code to Qtopia does not include several things that the official 
builds do.

Handwriting recognition, qterminal, and gsm on/off are the ones I noticed initially. There may be 
several other things missing from the open source version too.

Lorn pointed me to where the source for qterminal was meant to be, but I couldn't find it. I just 
copied the binary from the official tar to my build.

Here is what Lorn said about qterminal source...
