from quick start manual, i notice that all toolchain tarballs have
"sdk" in the filename, whereas the actual downloads have "gmae". a
simple textual fix, i'm assuming. (what means "gmae"?)
GMAE = GNOME Mobile and Embedded

think cut down GNOME.

more significantly, QS manual states that toolchains "should" be
installed under /opt/poky. "should" is a loaded word -- it implies a
recommendation for some benefit but not an actual requirement. and
installing it there requires the reader to have root privilege,
something to be avoided if at all possible.

can someone clarify the "shouldness" or "mustness" of toolchain
installation under /opt/poky?
At this point its a requirement, we'd like to relax that but it isn't
possible right now.
