If you have a built source tree you can cd to ide/flashbuilder and run
"ant make-sdk".  

In FlashBuilder, for your project, set your SDK to this directory.  Then
go to File -> Import -> General -> Existing Projects Into Workspace and
use the frameworks/projects directory as the root directory and look for
projects.  You can include any of these projects.  I usually include
frameworks, mx, spark and textLayout which covers the majority of my
development.  Then for your projects Properties -> Flex Build Path add
each of these projects.

There are a few frameworks/projects directories which don't have
FlashBuilder directories.

Note that your source tree will be "polluted" since
flex-config/air-config/airmobile-config.xml will be modified for
