You probably want to use RDEPENDS += "libmcrypt libmhash" to include them as runtime dependencies.

Newbie question I have: I modified (example from

hoping that libmcrypt and libmhash libraries would be included in the result
image, but they are not.

The individual recipes for libmhash and libmcrypt prepare libraries as ipk
files correctly.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you,
