I've been getting my feet wet with openembedded trying to create
configuration files for another machine -- I've actually gotten to the
point that on config file changes, I just nuke the entire tmp
directory after each change.

(on an antique 1.25GHz Athlon, this means roughly a four-hour
turnaround time for rebuilding task-base.  Reminds me of my undergrad
days with punched cards...)
