+ <p>When using BR2 in an environment where own software binaries or
+ static data should be part of the generated rootfs package, the
+ <code>BR2_ROOTFS_POST_BUILD_SCRIPT</code> feature might interest
+ you. You can specify a command here which is called <i>after</i> BR2
+ built all the selected software, but <i>before</i> the the rootfs
+ packages are assembled. The destination rootfs folder is given as
+ first argument. You can add own components here, change
+ default configurations and remove unwanted files.</p>
+ <p>You should, however, use that feature with care. Whenever you
+ find that a certain package generates wrong or unneeded files, you
+ should rather fix than package than working around it with a
+ cleanup script.</p>
