Zstd in opkg

Yoe distro uses opkg package manager unlike rpm as used by poky, There is a recent patch on OE-Core mailing list on enabling zstd in opkg. Once this patch lands in OE-Core we will enable zstd in Yoe as well. in site.conf

OPKGBUILDCMD = 'opkg-build -Z zstd -a "${XZ_DEFAULTS}"'

This should improve speeds for builds. Especially final image builds which is constructed out of generated ipks.

Neat, I like the flexibility of packages during development, but the packaging step is probably one reason OE is slower than Buildroot.
