base.bbclass: Introduce PACKAGECONFIG_CONFARGS variable
* add separate variable for configuration options generated from PACKAGECONFIG setting, this helps other bbclasses and recipes to take advantage of PACKAGECONFIG mechanism, without including other options from EXTRA_OECONF * e.g. meta-qt5 recipes are abusing EXTRA_OECONF to get options from PACKAGECONFIG: EXTRA_QMAKEVARS_PRE += but with conf/distro/include/ it means getting --disable-static as invalid option inside EXTRA_QMAKEVARS_PRE as reported by Alexandre Belloni who tried to use poky with meta-qt5. * once we migrate all bbclasses and recipes to PACKAGECONFIG_CONFARGS we should also restrict EXTRA_OECONF append only to autotools.bbclass like I did for cmake.bbclass Signed-off-by: Martin Jansa <> Signed-off-by: Ross Burton <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
