At least I don't check building on MacOSX. If anybody has patches to help
building it ootb I'm looking forward to it.

dfu-util has moved from Openmoko infrastructure as I don't want to depend on it
for future development. Given the low volume of problems/discussions/patches I
think we don't need a full featured bug tracker for such a small project.

If we want to make sure problems are known I would simply suggest to keep a list
within the repo. I already have a TODO file there and also having a BUG file
would not do any harm.

Any more info on the lsusb detection problem? Is there any known fix for this?

The echo -e is seems like a problem I introduced. I was never good at pure shell
programming. :)
