core-image-minimal works with my configuration on qemuarm. It also successfully
builds what will soon be released as opkg-0.2.3 and the recipe for toybox-0.4.9
which I've recently created.

I tried building core-image-full-cmdline as I think that would be good next step
from core-image-minimal. I'm seeing failures in:

  meta/recipes-devtools/e2fsprogs/, do_compile

  meta/recipes-extended/iputils/, do_compile
  meta/recipes-extended/gzip/, do_compile
  meta/recipes-extended/sudo/, do_compile
  meta/recipes-extended/mc/, do_compile

I can share detailed logs if anyone wants them. I'll have a look and see if I
can find some low hanging fruit amongst these which are easy to fix.
