Adding libraries/packages to the toolchain using bitbake / openembedded

I'm trying to build navit using the openmoko toolchain. The problem is 
that it seems to require the libgps include files for gpsd support. 
Ideally I'd like to add a package to the toolchain using a bitbake 
recipe from the openmoko git repository. I have tried to find the 
relevant documentation on the wiki, but have only found [1], which 
seems to be an odd way (replicating all the work which went in to the 
bitbake recipes). Can someone please explain how to add packages to the 
installed toolchain using bitbake? I'll volunteer to document the 
procedure on the Wiki as soon as it works for me.
