[IAEP] Arch Linux XO image and Sugar packages

I recently switched to Arch Linux and I put together a couple of things
that others might find useful.

* A trivial script to build minimal images for the XO. It builds a kernel
from the OLPC git repository and put it together with prebuilt packages
from the Arch Linux ARM project. It's enough to setup a wifi connection and
install more stuff with pacman. It's XO 1.75 specific at the moment, but it
should be easy to make it work on other versions.


I will post a prebuilt image later.

* AUR -git packages for the Sugar core and the browse activity. They makes
it pretty easy to install the very latest sugar. (I tested them on my
laptop, not on the XO yet).

All of these are very much a work in progress. I'm posting them mostly
because they might be of interest for Arch Linux users. Patches and bug
reports both appreciated!
