Yes, there's always interest in adding more useful packages to buildroot.

It should be possible to shorten the makefile significantly by using
the package/Makefile.autotools.in infrastructure to e.g. do the
download, patch, autoconf and configure steps. See for example
package/midori/midori.mk.

Now buildroot is maintained in git it is preferable to submit patches
as git patches with a Signed-off-by line, and patches that are
submitted in that way are usually applied more quickly. It's also a
good idea to open a new feature request in the bugzilla so your patch
does not get lost.
