Again, thanks *so* much for putting this together. I tried to do this
once before and didn't have the tenacity to stick with it--it is a
surprisingly daunting task. Having a smallest-possible example will, I
think, be really helpful to developers who want to learn how to debug
bitbake and contribute fixes.

Interestingly, I tried running this and got the following result:

bitbake_hello% ../bitbake-1.15.2/bin/bitbake a
The BBPATH variable is not set
DEBUG: Removed the following variables from the environment:
http_proxy, CVS_RSH,
SHLVL, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, EDITOR, SUDO_USER, USERNAME, PROMPT,
PYTHONPATH, SUDO_UID,
RPROMPT, SUDO_COMMAND, SUDO_GID, OLDPWD, MAIL


I guess I either fat-fingered something during cut-and-paste, or it's
due to some difference between the tarball I downloaded and the bitbake
tag you were using. I'm behind a firewall, but I'll see if I can suck
down the the actual git repo through my phone and see if that makes a
difference.
