When in doubt, ask the wizard. :)

It seems the majority of problems with wsp's/solutions/search server express issues in my new environment were beautifully solved by running the SharePoint Products and Technologies wizard.

- Search wasn't picking up sites copied into the new environment - wizard run fixed this...
- My "capture site on delete" feature (http://governance.codeplex.com/) wasn't working quite right - wizard run fixed this...
- Alternate access mappings weren't resolving quite right  - wizard run fixed this...
- General "wonkyness"  - wizard run fixed this...

Perhaps these issues are demonstrative of a larger issue? But, in any case I had tried everything and finally decided to run the wizard. Life is good now and SharePoint is happy. Yay.
