Thanks for sending my the examples, I am sorry that I am not grasping the

Looking at the "tiny example" below, it inherits autotools, so that is
good, as I am using autools in my project to generate Makefile as well.

My questions:
- Where in this recipe below points to my project directory?
- Is ${FSL_MIRROR}/${PN} where I place my project?  Or
- where in the build/tmp/work/... area should I place my project? In my
case, what environment variables shall I use?

How can I skip the SRC_URI checksums?  I don't need that as I am placing
trusted source in the the tree.

Would BB automatically run ./configure , make and make install ?

How would this recipe get called ? entry in my conf.local?

Many Thanks,
