Yes that was a typo.  Using the wrong path gives a patch file where 
everything is added (I tried out of curiosity).

Thanks John, I forgot to actually patch with "make update". 

The patch is then applied (which I can verify by checking the file in 
"openmoko/trunk/<rest of path>") but it makes no difference to the xml 
file created in rootfs/usr/share/.  I didn't verify if behavior of the 
executable in rootfs/usr/bin/ changed yet.  It was a clean build.

Are these files not used in making the image then?  What's the point of 
them being there?  Do I need to go back and patch a different set of 
files instead so the rootfs is made as desired?
