I wonder whether cvs is missing from the Ubuntu install list (which is required to get e.g. c-sdk when pulling using client.py). Is it pulled in from one of the dependencies or does it need to be added to the list?
Also I had to install the following two packages in order to build current trunk:
- libiw-dev (or specify --disable-necko-wifi)
Of course installing yasm to get faster VP8/WebM is a good idea now, too, and using ccache (which needs some setup so I won't go into further detail here).
