Why is music player daemon client part of the toolchain?

I am really curious why the music player daemon client is part of the build system toolchain

$ make -j 6 toolchain/install
make[2]: Entering directory '/mnt/extnbd/devel/openwrt/scripts/config'
 make[1] toolchain/install
 make[3] -C tools/mpc compile

Is this so we can listen to nice elevator/hold music during the subsequent build? :wink:

Take a look at https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/blob/master/tools/mpc/Makefile

Hah! I looked at openwrt/package/feeds/packages/mpc/Makefile - now that's embarassing! :laughing:


There's no way whatsoever an OpenWrt build will rely on stuff from the package repository to set up the build environment :wink:. Another hint is you're seeing the tools/mpc path and not a package/...path.
