I'm still not doing something right.  I did a clean rebuild of

I guess I'm still in shock over this.  I mean why should I have to do
anything other than:
PACKAGE_CLASSES ?= "package_ipk"
this means thats what format you want for package to be spitted out.
weather you want online (on device) package management is a different story

I mean, if I specify I want package_ipk in the "Package Management
configuration" section, doesn't logic follow that the image would be
created with opkg and some sample opkg.conf files?  What use is it to
generate all those .ipk's for the repository the build does without
opkg being there?
