Hi Yousong,

I’ve been working on both OpenWRT and LEDE and needed to get some hooks working in OpenWRT so I focused on that first.

These are the changes I made, but I couldn’t get it to work.

Was wondering if anyone can run with this.

Part of the problem is making package/Makefile recurse with additional arguments and a different working directory…  When I try to do this, the submake of package/Makefile gets run without inherited variables like $(INCLUDE_DIR), etc.

Also odd is even though the top of package/Makefile says:


when it recurses $(curdir) retains some other value like “target” or “toolchain”.  Not sure why.

Any guidance appreciated.
