Steve, All,

There is a simple way to add packages from GitHub, see:
    http://nightly.buildroot.org/#_tips_and_tricks

Basically, that means wirting:

    LEVELDB_SOURCE = $(call github,google,leveldb,$(LEVELDB_VERSION))

I know the manual says to prefer the "green button" but in this case, it
means we would end up with a tarball locally named v1.18.tar.gz.

This is not nice, because there is thus no way to know what package it
applies to, and we usually have tarballs named foo-version.tar.gz

So, in this case, I would prefer we use the github helper, even though
upstream has uploaded release tarballs.

Passing CC and CXX is not enough, because you are missing the CFLAGS and
CXXFLAGS, as well as others, like LDFLAGS.

We usually write:

    $(MAKE) $(TARGET_MAKE_ENV) $(TARGET_CONFIGURE_OPTS) -C $(@D)

I think you are the first one to actually use HOSTLN! :-)
Hmm, in fact I already used it in keyutils. Hehe! :-)

Ah, we have had a very recent (like, *very* recent) change that allows
the user to select what libraries they want:
  - shared only
  - static only
  - both

So, you'd want to write something like:

    ifeq ($(BR2_STATIC_LIBS)$(BR2_SHARED_STATIC_LIBS),y)
    define LEVELDB_INSTALL_STAGING_STATIC
        $(INSTALL) -D -m 0644 $(@D)/libleveldb.a       $(STAGING_DIR)/usr/lib
    endef
    endif

    ifeq ($(BR2_SHARED_LIBS)$(BR2_SHARED_STATIC_LIBS),y)
    define LEVELDB_INSTALL_STAGING_SHARED
        $(INSTALL) -D -m 0755 $(@D)/libleveldb.so.1.18 $(STAGING_DIR)/usr/lib
        $(HOSTLN) -sf libleveldb.so.1.18 $(STAGING_DIR)/usr/lib/libleveldb.so.1
        $(HOSTLN) -sf libleveldb.so.1.18 $(STAGING_DIR)/usr/lib/libleveldb.so
    endef
    endif

    define LEVELDB_INSTALL_STAGING_CMDS
        $(INSTALL) -d -m 0755 $(STAGING_DIR)/usr/include/leveldb
        $(INSTALL) -D -m 0644 $(@D)/include/leveldb/*.h $(STAGING_DIR)/usr/include/leveldb
        $(LEVELDB_INSTALL_STAGING_STATIC)
        $(LEVELDB_INSTALL_STAGING_SHARED)
    endef

    ifeq ($(BR2_SHARED_LIBS)$(BR2_SHARED_STATIC_LIBS),y)
    define LEVELDB_INSTALL_TARGET_CMDS
        $(INSTALL) -D -m 0755 $(@D)/libleveldb.so.1.18 $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/lib
        $(HOSTLN) -sf libleveldb.so.1.18 $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/lib/libleveldb.so.1
        $(HOSTLN) -sf libleveldb.so.1.18 $(TARGET_DIR)/usr/lib/libleveldb.so
    endef
    endif

Otherwise, this looks real good!
