pkg_VERSION = ...

You can specify a git branch, a git commit, whatever commit identifier
that is valid for git.

Either use the "make install" of the package (or implement it), or use
ln to create the symlinks.

I don't know. qserialdevice should go in Libraries -> Hardware
handling. I don't see why it would need to end up in a qt-specific

Should be:

	(cd $(@D); $(QT_QMAKE) serialport.pro)

Does it *absolutely* require udev ? I have never used QSerialDevice,
but QExtSerialPort instead, and udev wasn't necessary.
