Thanks for providing the setup! As an initial test I've started a build
against the source gcc-linaro-4.6-2012.02. There is a small bash script
 that automates checkouts (oe-core, meta-linaro and bitbake
branches), creates a config that suites our requirements and finally
kicks off builds of the sato and qt4e images. It's been compiling for
some time now - still looking good. :)

As for the documentation - do we need anything more than what's in the wiki?

Sure, just point me to the tarballs and I'll create the recipe and give
it a go.
