fixed as

"Last time I tried it" a few weeks ago it was unable to build the 1,100
packages it decided it wanted to build before it would do anything
useful: it choked on more than one but the one that made me throw my
hands in the air was when it failed on building build host native dbus
libs.  (Of course it didn't need to build any of them since they are
sitting in the repo in packages already built).

All I wanted to do then was compile something else against target tslib
libs (same as we talk about now by coincidence).  But it insisted to
build host dbus libs, and after some hours churning away found it
couldn't.  "Experimental" near-release development branch Fedora - and
me - got the blame at the time, but Fedora can compile itself with its
tools and this is not the first cross build system I used.

When the happy day comes it can compile against -dev packages on the
build host, and not build even 1 extra package let alone 1,100, I'll try
it again: until then userspace on openmoko is closed to me unless I am
going to build it by hand, which is what I ended up doing on dm2.
