It can be used like that, but for a single package, it's a bit complex. If you use the regular images, then you can create a "lazy" package. Just create a normal package and then modify the makefile like this: "PACKAGES-$(PTXCONF_..." -> "LAZY_PACKAGES-$(PTXCONF_..." The package will not be added to the rootfs, however, it will not be built by default either. So you need to run "ptxdist targetinstall <pkg-name>" to build it.
