I've set up OE, a local overlay, and this seems to work fine as I've built several different images and have them running on the target.
I'm now to the point where I want to start developing our application code. Some of this code is based on the GIW library (graphical plotting library), so I thought that I would work to get this and its examples included in the my 'custom' distribution before moving on.
In my local overlay, I created a packages/giw directory and added the following starter bitbake file (and I've tried different things after the SRC_URI with same results):
DESCRIPTION = "Giw Plotting Libraries"
LICENSE = "gpl"
DEPENDS += "gtk+"
SRC_URI = "\
If I run bitbake giw , it downloads the file from sourceforge and places it into my tmp/dowloads directory. Following that, I get this output:

It's not clear to me why it's trying to do this. I'm assuming that there is some 'global' thing controlling this, but I'm not sure what it is. Why is it trying to download something from Angstrom?
I know that I'm going to stumble over many different issues as I move forward. I thank everyone in advance for the help.
