Topic: Building package from source directly - what am I missing?
I spent some time this weekend building tinysid (http://www.rsinsch.de/?id=7298b) with the Kamikaze 8.09 branch of the build-system.
I followed the instructions at http://kamikaze.openwrt.org/docs/openwr … 460002.1.2 to create a Makefile and stuck it into the package/tinysid directory.
I was able to get tinysid to compile, but I had to create a tarball of the modified source and stick it up on the network so that I could enter a PKG_SOURCE_URL and keep the build-system happy.
Maybe I am missing something obvious, but is there a way to build a package from the source files directly instead of via wget from a tarball on the network?
It seems silly to have to stick a package up on the network just so that the build system can download it again.
