Strange, that must have been some interim build Jun did.

All of the open source work we do we push out to the community tree
immediately. That's a rule we live by and there's no exceptions. The Ocelot
code was pushed out back then. Since then I've seen lots of additions to that
directory and obviously something got broke.
QED did receive an Alliance CD with the Ocelot LSP on it, so they should
be able to provide you with a copy of the cdimage, including the
source. But the kernel will be 2.4.2 based though -- I don't know where
the 2.4.0 came from.

MontaVista's, but I'm biased ;-) The toolchain will be on the CD as
