I tried compiling the Laverne branch on a cloned Poky git repo. It
also fails when processing the acl package. Any workarounds? Is there
any log file I can look at for more details?
You can find log files in the build directory with a relative
path like .../tmp/work/*/acl*/temp

In particular, look at the log.do_unpack file for clues

This is what I see:

$ cat armv5te-poky-linux-gnueabi/acl-2.2.49-r0/temp/log.do_unpack
gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

The mirror where bb is configured to get acl from,,
is down. I'll try to get it from the Savannah site.
yes, it's very likely that the file you downloaded from the mirror is broken. You can
either change the SRC_URI in the acl*.bb to the real Savannah link, or download it
manually and then copy to the place where DL_DIR in your build/conf/local.conf
points to. It doesn't make sense not using Savannah directly. A fix will be sent out
