If you're talking about the ones in the experimental.swc, there are in the 
4.9 but you can use them with en_US only, I re-worked them in the develop 
branch, so if you want to use them and even to have an SDK you can use with 
IntelliJ, constantly updated, chekout the develop branch, do a first build, 
a release, use the makeApacheFlexForFlashBuilder on the released develop 
branch itself, not the resulting binaries.

Like that you can set this fresh SDK as the SDK you use if you want to make 
change in the SDK, you'll have only to run the ant target corresponding to 
the lib you modified (and the other.locales too) and you'll be able to test 
it right away on your sample projects.

Ask me if I haven't been completly clear.

Which would of given you last release 4.9.

Make a release build from the source with ant release, copy and unzip/untar 
the release and use the script in the IDE directory to make an SDK usable 
for Flash Builder or any other IDE.

Um yes. The source gets compiled in swcs (in the frameworks/lib directory) 
that your Flex application uses.

You would still have the package the SDK up, your issue is not unique to 
just Flash Builder.

Hope that helps.
