the wiki at docs.b.u.o only allows writing to people who ask and are granted 
permission.  that keeps the spammers at bay, keeps the less knowledgeable 
from entering incorrect info, and allows us to make sure copyright/licensing 
is in our domain.

the wiki operates with the implicit knowledge that all of the source code 
lives on blackfin.u.o.  when you visit that site, the frontpage has links to 
all the places.  but i'll toss in links at the top.

the src tarball is a little out of tune with how things are organized in svn.  
i blame bernd ;).  you'll probably have to unpack all the archives and take 
it from there.  generally people dont actually build the src tarball from a 
release because the binaries already exist.  they do however frequently build 
from svn ...
