I cheated, and commented out the SRC_URI reference to the repository in the recipe, and it found and unpacked the tar file.  I also created an MD5 file for it to find.   It went further this time, but complained about:

NOTE: make CROSS_COMPILE=arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi- omap3_overo_config
make: *** No rule to make target `omap3_overo_config'.  Stop.
FATAL: oe_runmake failed

That was when I bitbaked u-boot-omap3.  I've since started a bitbake of omap3-custom-image, to see what else it'll find, so I'll post a follow up later if I find anything I think would be valuable to someone else!

Thanks for the suggestions,
Rich

Oh and also are you sure you got EVERYTHING? It maybe looking for things
outside of what you copied to the directory, Also make sure you config file
is properly pointing to the directory you put everything in.
