Thank you,
Would I then have to have a script to pack my local overlay before
building the package ? Sorry for my confusion, I'm all new to this build
environment. How does everyone else do this ?

my local overlay base directory and let it copy everything below and
including that point to the work directory and the build it. But i'm
guessing that there is something that I am missing here =)
