I've been building 'shr-unstable-image' at home for some time now and
it's running fine on my phone. I had similar problems as you describe in
beginning of august. I dont do any local local-builds though (i.e. no
'require local-builds.inc' in my shr-unstable/conf/local.conf).
From what I recall somebody was trying to get rid of all
'*-dev'-packages from the image but that lead to a lot of missing
components that were automatically pulled into the image by the
'*-dev'-packages. It's a neccessary task to clean up that mess but
certainly not simple, kudos to those who try.
Ainulindale suggested on IRC (#openmoko-cdevel) the following which
lead to a lot of missing packages were built and problems resolved
(thank you again :-) ).
(11:42:51 PM) Ainulindale:make update (twice to be sure)
(11:42:51 PM) Ainulindale: then
(11:42:59 PM) Ainulindale: rm -rf tmp/stamps/*/task-shr*
(11:43:05 PM) Ainulindale: rm -rf tmp/stamps/*/shr-splash*
(11:43:18 PM) Ainulindale: rm -rf tmp/deploy/glibc/ipk/*/shr-splash*
(11:43:23 PM) Ainulindale: rm -rf tmp/deploy/glibc/ipk/*/task-shr*
(11:43:30 PM) Ainulindale: and bitbake shr-lite-image
So I made a script like:
rm -rf tmp/stamps/*/task-shr*
rm -rf tmp/stamps/*/shr-splash*
rm -rf tmp/deploy/glibc/ipk/*/shr-splash*
rm -rf tmp/deploy/glibc/ipk/*/task-shr*
Try that and see if the missing parts fall into the puzzle.
Regarding the missing engines in E make sure you have these packages
root at om-gta02 ~ $ opkg list_installed | grep engine

Seeing a little more from /tmp/x.log would have been more describing.
Good luck and please dont give up hope :-)
