this is indeed a problem. even just a proper setup script/makefile officially
blessed and distributed by OE would be a big step!

also.. there needs to be rationalising of the oe distros - they really have
diverged too far. there needs to be a move back to 1 distro, just multiple
IMAGES that ship different package sets. at least now i am struggling to build
both angstrom and openmoko based images and on some targets openmoko just is
not going to play ball and vice-versa.

since openmoko is a bastard-child-of-angstrom - maybe we should merge back to
angstrom and simply fix some of its pluggability.
