Actually the fso image includes gpsd, and that starts gllin
automatically.  So all you need to do is use the fso-testing image, then
patch the ogpsd with the patches from trac 49 and 50, add the config
lines to /etc/frameworkd.conf, and ipkg install the gllin package (you
need to click through the license to download that one).

Then it all works automatically.

The fso-unstable image should have everything included already, but I
don't know what else is in flux in that image (I use the fso-testing
image myself).
