I don't know if you're a beginner or advanced, but when I started with Flex 3 months ago, I had the same problem. Not much good tuts for the command line stuff, that's why I used Flash Builder 4.
My sincere advice, if you're starting out with Flex development, you'll have a lot more fun and a lot less stress if you go with the commercial stuff that Adobe has. I haven't completely forgotten about command-line compilers, and intend to look them up later, but for now, gotta focus on moving on with the learning.
Just an opinion for you.
Yeah sorry, I should have said I was more than comfortable with AS3 and Flash Builder. With the imminent release of AIR2 and CS5 curiosity has got the better of me, and I would like to start playing around with the new "native process" stuff in AIR2, the ZIP/XML FLA format, the SDK compilers, and Ant ... just to see what new workflows and tools etc I can create for myself.

One thing that might interest you is sourcemate from elementriver
This plugin has a feature that creates the ant build file you need for commandline compiles, its a good start to see how things work, also if you grab the svn version of the flex sdk it has all the build files to compile the sdk, you can learn a lot by going through these.
Thanks man, taking a look at it now
Thanks, that's perfect.
From that main page all of the compiler info can be found under +"Developer Tools" +"Flex compilers"
