I would prefer to keep the source outside the vm, as it would make
distributing the vm easier, and also once rockbox is built, it is easier to
get the compiled binary on to the player if I can just connect the player
up, and then go into my build folder on the host OS to get the zip file to
extract to the player.

But just to see if I could compile successfully I did an svn checkout
directly into the vm, and the build seemed to be going well, it got a lot
further than when I was trying to get it to compile in the shared folder,

but eventually I got a different error, and this is a clean unmodified
