Best way to add dev libs and headers to toolchains?

Ok so I want to add some libs and header files to one of the various toolchains I have.
I use both the Qtopia toolchain and the openmoko toolchain (Mokomakefile already has them).
I could manually copy the .so and .h files, but that is tedious and error prone, plus you always
need to ln -s the .so.
I have a *-dev.ipk package with everything in it, so it would be nice if I could do an opkg install
to the toolchain on my workstation.
I see the wiki has a way to build a new library under the OM toolchain, but I don't need to build it
as I already have it built as an ipk.
Could I use dpkg on my Ubuntu system to unpack and install the ipk? It seems to be dpkg compatible,
but I'd need to tell it where to install. (I'm not a dpkg expert)
The library in question is gpsd-dev_2.34-r9_armv4t.ipk, although the question is more generic as I
run into this a lot.
