Thanks. However, I tested your package, and it fails to build:

make[1]: entrant dans le répertoire « /home/thomas/projets/buildroot/output/build/libiio-2014_R1/iiod »
install --strip-program=/home/thomas/projets/buildroot/output/host/usr/bin/arm-linux-strip -D -s -m 0755 \
		iiod /home/thomas/projets/buildroot/output/target/usr/sbin/iiod
install -m 0755 iiod.sh /home/thomas/projets/buildroot/output/target/etc/init.d/iiod.sh
update-rc.d iiod.sh defaults 99 01
update-rc.d: /etc/init.d/iiod.sh: file does not exist
make[1]: *** [install] Erreur 1

First, the Makefile should not be calling update-rc.d, and also the
init script in /etc/init.d/ should not be named iiod.sh in Buildroot,
but directly S<number><name>.

Also, is the install command with stripping is not good for Buildroot:
we want to control whether stripping happens or not.

Now that I think of it, you could also do:

ifeq ($(BR2_PACKAGE_LIBIIO_IIOD),y)
LIBIIO_MAKE_DIRS += iiod
endif

ifeq ($(BR2_PACKAGE_LIBIIO_TESTS),y)
LIBIIO_MAKE_DIRS += tests
endif

Replace those last two lines with:

	for d in $(LIBIIO_MAKE_DIRS); do \
		$(TARGET_MAKE_ENV) $(MAKE) -C $(@D)/$$d $(LIBIIO_MAKE_OPTS) || break ; \
	done

And ditto here.

Note that the Makefile of libiio could make this a little bit nicer by
having a build and installation scheme that is easy to work with
several make targets.

Thanks!
