Seems like I should read a bit more about ipkg.

http://handhelds.org/moin/moin.cgi/BuildingIpkgs uses ipkg-utils for
building / host side and not the target. 

so, it seems like they are using the C-version for unpaking/target side.

OpenWRT also uses ipkg and have a ipkg shell script in their repository
but I haven't looked much at what / how they use.

So, if anyone out there would like ipkg support in buildroot, let me
know how you want it and I'll try to fix it. I guess it's quite obvious
that I'm not familiar nor using ipkg :=)
