Thats what I thought, but the OM branch of OE must have fixed some bugs that are in OE proper, 
because when trying to get OE to build I run into the same bugs over and over, I have seen others 
report those bugs but never get any answers.

There is a bug where they use dir to count the number of files but use the wrong number to check 
with, I patched that, the current bug I haven't been able to fix is one where it reports

install: cannot stat `libfl.a': No such file or directory

when trying to build flex-native. I have seen that reported but no workarounds given.

I didn't run into any of these problems with MM, so I guess they were either fixed or worked around.

Do those ring any bells?
