[Buildroot] gsoap and code generation

I have a web service implemented as a cgi served by lighttpd. Part of the sources of the cgi are generated by gsoap that takes as input some wsdl files and outputs some files in c.

I checked in buildroot 2016.08 and there is no support for gsoap. In google I found a proposed patch to add gsoap to buildroot here


Is there a more recent version of this patch?

I can also try to write my own script, but gsoap is a little bit tricky: there are some commands that need to be executed on the host, namely wsdl2h and soapcpp2, that generate the C code and than there's a bunch of libraries that need to be cross-compiled.

How can I write a script that compiles a tool for the host and the libraries for the target?

Thank you
