The easiest way I've found is to simply create a conf-files
recipe/package that contains files to be overwritten. The are may
other ways to do this, including modifying the original recipe etc.
If you specify this conf-files last in the list of packages to
install, then it will overwrite the contents of previous packages.
You may run into problems with this if you plan to use opkg update,
but for most of my projects, we don't use opkg update in the field.

What I typically do is create a custom image
(http://bec-systems.com/web/content/view/79/9/). If you really want
fine control, you could start with minimal-image and specify all the
packages you want in the image manually in the image recipe. You can
still use the task-xxx groups in the IMAGE_INSTALL variable if they
contain what you want.
