Did you try:

1) bitbake package_name (PN variable from .bb file or filename of .bb
file without version _version.bb

2) bitbake -c build -b path_to_bbfile.bb

3) build whole image for device/distro bitbake shr-image (if your
package is between dependencies it would be built, if not you can add it
to ie recipes/tasks/task-shr.bb)

4) if you build image you will have opk repository in your work dir, or
you can use opkg files directly (for me /tmp/gta/deploy/glibc/ipk/ and
images in /tmp/gta/deploy/glibc/images/).

5) if you're not building whole image but want to refresh Package.gz
files to update neo from you repo, you can use bitbake -c rebuild -b

Hope this helps
