The MokoMakefile is not maintained by OpenMoko and nor is the build
system that it hides (OpenEmbedded and bitbake).

This looks like the sane srcrev is missing for opkg. I believe this will
have been caused because Tick asked for the revision to be
"unfixed" (i.e. it should now track head).

You'll need to ask an OpenEmbedded developer to look into this and fix
as appropriate. In this case I think Julian made the change so I have
CC'd him to this e-mail.
