Unfortunately it doesn't work.

I have tried with the linux kernel so I commented out download.sh lines 
in this way:
#URL=http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v3.x/linux-3.5.tar.bz2 \
#SHA1=d80e85147417605e125fc3fb263af85d7ffd1ad5 \
#ALT=http://kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v3.0/testing/linux-3.0-rc1.tar.bz2 \
#maybe_fork "download || dienow"

Left sources/patches untouched.

Cloned linux git tree into packages/cache/linux

./build.sh $ARCH results in:

make[1]: Leaving directory 
cleanup build-gcc
cleanup gcc-core
=== ccwrap (i686-virtio simple-cross-compiler)
=== linux-headers (i686-virtio simple-cross-compiler)
=== linux (i686-virtio simple-cross-compiler)
No tarball for linux

Exiting due to errors (i686-virtio simple-cross-compiler linux)

real	2m30.463s

sys	0m19.117s

Do you have any suggestions?
