Something odd is happening. Package "mc" is not detected by "make menuconfig" and is not installed by "scripts/feeds install mc".

Steps to reproduce:

git clone
scripts/feeds update -a
$ ls -l feeds/packages/utils/mc
total 12
-rw-rw-r-- 1 val val 1614 Nov 19 18:34
-rw-rw-r-- 1 val val 3103 Nov 19 18:34 Makefile
drwxrwxr-x 2 val val 4096 Nov 19 18:34 patches


scripts/feeds install -a

A symlink for package "mc" in package/feeds/packages/ is not created. "make menuconfig" does not see package "mc" at all:

$ ls -l package/feeds/packages/mc ls: cannot access 'package/feeds/packages/mc': No such file or directory

The issue is observed on LEDE HEAD as of the time of this writing: bc50a97

This is bizarre.

The root of the problem is that there is a package named //mc// in the core packages (added as part of //NXP layerscape// platform on Oct 16). As it stands now, core packages always take precedence over community packages. Perhaps the layerscape management package should be differently named.
