I got everything down, finally got everything built (well, so far), including git, svn, mtn, boost, (1.33.1), bb, and a whole host of other packages. My poor little box has been compiling its little brains out. I think I have everything in place.

I downloaded the mtn 0.36 OE snapshot, but when I try to do the first "mtn pull" against monotone.openembedded.org, the connection hangs. It also hangs against the other servers that have been mentioned. I think this is due to our company's draconian firewall policy.
Another option would be to set up a build system outside your
organization and access it using SSH. You can do all your builds
externally, and use scp to copy the images back to wherever you are
working. For example, if you have high speed internet access at your
home, it is trivial to put a Linux box on the internet and access it
remotely. This will allow how to set it up however you want.
I often do this when I'm working on-site with customers and am doing
builds on my workstation back at the office.
