I think the linphone version in OE would work if I could work out how to force
opkg to use the 2.2.2 version of libosip2. Every time I try it insists on
using 3.1.0 which doesn't work with linphone 1.6 :-(
The alternative is making a .bb for the current linphone version, which has
the advantage of having hooks so you can add a GUI.
