uboot build problems

I'm building on Ubuntu 7.04 using MokoMakefile with the fic-gta01 target.

I was having the problem that patches were out of sync on uboot and followed
the fix specified on the wiki
(http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Talk:MokoMakefile, item 16) and made the
first line of /home/moko/oe/packages/uboot/uboot-gta01_svn.bb's SRC_URI to

This allows me to build uboot correctly, and therefore the build continues.

However, EVERY time I try to build openmoko-devel-image (or my variant of
it) it is forcing uboot to build, and that is causing linux to build.

On the IRC channel is was suggested I add BBMASK = "uboot" to local.conf.
This, however, resulted in the build complaining that the reference to uboot
had no definition.

How do I keep the makefile from constantly rebuilding these things?  Also,
is there a way to tell it NOT to go out and get the very latest stuff?  I
would much rather work with a stable local build until I specifically want
to grab the latest stuff.  There have been several times in the last month
that the build has been broken--either because something is inconsistent, or
because some svn server wasn't responding.
