[Buildroot] Phidgets library and web server?

Dear Buildroot colleagues,
I have integrated the Phidgets (http://www.phidgets.com/) 
libphidget- and phidgetwebservice into my Buildroot tracking 

I have tested on x86 and i.MX287.

The Phidgets software license is LGLP Version 3. No publicly accessible 
repo, just tarball downloads.

Uses autoconf build system.

Requires glibc and libusb.

>From the Phidgets site:

"Phidgets are a set of user friendly building blocks for low cost USB 
sensing and control from your PC."

My client is using Phidgets products on a custom i.MX287 board rather 
than a PC, for control of a home kitchen and restaurant appliance using 
GPIO's and ADC's. I personally have no commercial interest in Phidgets.

I can commit to maintaining for six months on arm, x86 and ppc.

My question to you is, is this the type of package that we want to add to 
Buildroot? Should I submit patches? Or is there a "contrib" dir where I 
could put the patches?

Best regards,

  - yba
