I think Om fixed that.  It should be README in the source tree but READme
on the distro site so it is visible.

If you read the README, AIR_HOME can be an environment variable but
FLEX_HOME can not - you need to set it on the command line or in
build.properties.  I have an AIR_HOME environment variable.  I always
forget to specify -DFLEX_HOME=/path/to/flex but I remember when I get the
error.

I'm home now.  It worked fine.  I didn't have to hit anything in the
browser but as I said earlier I couldn't get to it from the Adobe network
today.
