Currently the code checked in to SVN is only the framework code it's missing the compiler
and a few other bits required to compile the framework.

The extra files can be obtained from here:

Click on the download link for the Open Source Flex SDK. Note that the download wasn't working
for me this morning.

Adobe is still going thought legal clearance to donate those files I believe and I'm not sure
when that is expected to be completed. It may also be because it contains are binary files
and there are issues with checking non source code files into Apace SVN???

That would be ideal but probably not possible even if all of the above files were in SVN.
The build script downloads playergloabal, osmf and the AIR integration kit from URLs as part
of the build process.
