No, in our case, the binary is provided to us as-is.  We just need to put it on the flash 
image.  Basically, Freescale has two development directions: the open source repositories, 
like the ones on denx.de and kernel.org, and the BSPs.  One problem I'm trying to address 
is that the BSPs typically have stuff that you won't find on the external repos, like this 
binary.  There's no way I can provide the binary in the denx.de repo, so the next best 
thing is to make its inclusion automatic.  If the binary exists, then the code from 
denx.de will process it.  Otherwise, it won't.
