I think adding so many configuration options for something like that
will just confuse people / complicate testing too much. Using
BR2_ROOTFS_POST_BUILD_SCRIPT for this seems like a nicer (and more
flexible) solution to me.

Ok, added without that part. Notice that libarchive needs wchar support:

libarchive/archive_entry.c: In function 'aes_get_wcs':
libarchive/archive_entry.c:234: error: implicit declaration of function 'mbstowcs'

I've fixed the kconfig to ensure that.

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
