Sorry, I'm still confused.  If it is the latest develop branch, how is the
installer involved?

I was about to guess that.  The README for the installer says you have to
specify AIR_HOME when building ant_on_air, was it set to some older
version of AIR SDK? It won't pick the AIR SDK out of the SDK specified by
FLEX_HOME.  So if you specify AIR_HOME as an AIR 4.0 SDK and then the
build works then this is not an installer issue.

However, I did notice the README is not quite correct.  The ant_on_air
build does not use FLEX_HOME_WIN and FLEX_HOME_MAC, the installer build
does.  I will fix the README.  It looks like the README is not in the
source package.  Did we fix a README issue for the SDK or Installer once
without doing another RC or is another RC required?

They are independent.  Other than downloading the binary package,
verifying the MD5, and uncompressing, the rest of the install
responsibilities are in the package, not the installer.  I suspect if you
actually use Ant to run the installer.xml you'll have the same problem.  I
know the temptation is to change the installer, but if we ever get the
installer out there, we'll be glad in the future that (hopefully) any
other SDK or FlexJS install issue can be fixed in the SDK and FlexJS
installer.xmls so we only vote on one package and not try to coordinate
two votes and two packages in the future.

Rats, looks like I missed that before.  I'll have a look in my morning.
