I just built and ran the installer from sources on Win7.  
FB4.7 accepted the results as a new SDK.
I created a new Flex project and it showed up in IE8 and FF15.
I didn't see any warnings or errors.

So, I would say we don't take the time to test all of the permutations of
configs.  Adobe is not open next week so I will be working from home
and testing the installer is slow because of the internet speeds I get at home, so
the less downloading I need to do, the better.
