Well, opkg doesn't tell me what URI the packages are available from,
until you try to install them.
As you can see above, 'opkg info <package>' only tells you the source
of the package, not where it can be downloaded from.
I had a look at the files in /var/lib/opkg, but they are the same as
'opkg info ..' output, so no help there
