However, for DirectFB I need to build a kernel module (sh772x gfx). The
source for this is included in the DirectFB tarball. At the moment, I'm
building the kernel and this module after building everything else with

I'm not sure how to add an additional build step for this. Is there an
existing BR package that does something similar?

The alternative would be a new package for this, but then how do I get it to
operate on the source from the DirectFB package?
