The start script itself is not in the snapgear source package.
The file is actually autogenerated on build - but that doesn't make
sense in the public source tree since a few of the management apps
are not GPL source.

The way to get the extra scripts and management binaries is to
take a supported SG580 binary download image from SnapGear and
run the snapgear/bin/extract-romfs tool against it. That will pull
all those files out for you.
