how to connect adb to a target that uses DHCP to get IP addr

 No, ADB doesn't support this at all at the moment. The easy fix is to
configure your DHCP server to
always return the same IP address for your board, based in its MAC address.

1. Am I missing something really dumb.

I have a service in an APK which starts a Thread which has the following 
in it's run method;

            Intent intent = new Intent("com.funkyandroid.TEST", dataURI);
            MyService.this.sendOrderedBroadcast(intent, null);

In a different APK I have the following in the application section manifest;

        <receiver    android:name=".Receiver" android:exported="true">
                <action android:name="com.funkyandroid.TEST />

And in the onRecieve(Context,Intent) method has;

        Log.i("Receiver", "Hello Momma!!!!!");

But the receiver doesn't receive the broadcast when I run it in the 
emulator (or at least the log message doesn't get received).

Any hints?

I am porting android to an armv5 platform. It works except at the end
I get a can't create VM heap message. The target device has no memory
issues, 44MB free memory. Anyone seen this heap problem before? Here
is the output:
