native tool from target recipe

Kacper Kubkowski

Hi all,
I have what I believe is a basic question yet I cannot find any definitive answer: is it possible for a target recipe (e.g. u-boot or barebox) to provide a native tool (i.e. mkimage) for the build system without the need to rebuild the providing recipe as a native one? To be more specific: I am using barebox as a bootloader and it always builds mkimage for host. I would like to use it later during the build process in another recipe (e.g. after the kernel is built) but I don't want to rebuild the bootloader as a native package. Given how flexible the build system is I suppose it is doable, but what is "the proper" way?

Kind regards,
