Building Robotlegs SWC

I've downloaded the latest building of RL from the Git Repository and am trying to build it (build the swc) using Buildr on OSX. I've run the Buildr install to make sure I had all the necessary dependencies and am now trying to run "bundle exec Buildr". The process is getting stuck trying to download the flexunit-clistener swc file and throws the following error:

RuntimeError : Failed to download com.adobe.flexunit:flexunit-cilistener:swc:, tried the following repositories:

I'm not sure why it would need to download this swc as it already exists in the lib directory and is linked in the rake file. I don't know a ton about how these processes work, nor where I could edit the build to try and point at one of the repos suggested by the error.. Any suggestions would be appreciated! I need to build a swc of the latest build so I can use the new relaxedEventMap extension, and also because trying to build using the src (instead of a compiled swc) is making my build-time extreeeeeemely long.

    After a bunch more trial and error, I gave up on Buildr and decided to give Maven a try. Unfortunately, Maven did not work either. I got a very annoying error about how Maven could not locate the Flash Player. This sent me down another long road of trial and error; however, this time I was able to get it working!

    So to help anyone else out there that is plagued by the Maven/Java unable to locate Flash Player issue, I've written a blog post outlining how I solved the issue:

    Hope this helps someone!

    Hi Kyle,

    Sorry we didn't get back to you sooner. I'm curious as to why you didn't try Ant first.

    I'm considering removing the Buildr stuff entirely as very few people are likely to use it, and its just an extra build script to maintain.

    Honestly, just from lack of experience on my part. I haven't done too much work with automated builds, but I had used Maven on a project recently so I knew I had all the goodies installed to get that up and running. That and I think I just completely missed it in the readme (Maven stuck out first).

    And no worries, hopefully my fumblings will prove useful to someone else =]
