Justin,

I am just getting back to this.  Do you think the build files need to have
something like

<external-library-path
dir="${env.PLAYERGLOBAL_HOME}/${playerglobal.version}">
    <include name="playerglobal.swc"/>
            </external-library-path>

rather than


<external-library-path dir="${env.PLAYERGLOBAL_HOME}">
    <include name="playerglobal.swc"/>
            </external-library-path>

and the *-config.xml files need

<external-library-path>
    
<path-element>{playerglobalHome}/{targetPlayerMajorVersion}.{targetPlayerMi
norVersion}/playerglobal.swc</path-element>
      </external-library-path>

rather than 

<external-library-path>
    <path-element>{playerglobalHome}/playerglobal.swc</path-element>
      </external-library-path>





The compiler subs {targetPlayerMajorVersion}.{targetPlayerMinorVersion}
with the relavent pices of the <target-player> tag or command line option.
 The default, which btw, I was surprised to see is hard-coded into the
compiler is 11.1.  

As it stands now it is a regression from 4.6 since -target-player does not
do what it should be doing in the frameworks/*-config files.
