If you want to eliminate ipk specifically then there is no problem: you
can select package_rpm or package_tar or package_deb instead.
If you want to eliminate the whole packaging step then this is rather
more tricky and it's not really obvious that this would buy much. Do
you have a proposal for how rootfs construction could be done in that
